#EndSARS: Adamawa govt. relaxes 24-hour curfew

The Adamawa Government has relaxed the 12- hour curfew imposed on the state in the wake of #EndSARS protest, which was hijacked by hoodlums.


The government announced this in a statement by Mr Humwashi Wonosikou, Press Secretary to Gov. Ahmadu Fintiri on Monday in Yola.


Wonosikou said that the curfew would now be from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. daily.


He quoted Fintiri as saying that the action followed gradual return of peace in the state.


“The Adamawa government has reviewed the 12- hour curfew imposed on the state, following events in the aftermath of the #EndSARS protest.


“The curfew, earlier imposed from 6 p.m. to 8 a.m., has now been relaxed with immediate effect.


“People are allowed to move around and go about their normal businesses from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m.,” he said.


The governor lauded residents of the state, who complied with the directive to return looted items to the government.


“We as a people are resolute to move this state forward.


“As we put these events behind us, I assure you that I will not relent but ensure that all we have set to achieve are achieved,” Fintiri said in the statement.
