Adamawa govt lifts curfew

Governor Murtala Nyako

 The dusk-to-dawn curfew imposed in Adamawa has been lifted by the state government.

 A statement issued on Tuesday by the Secretary to the State Government, Kobis Thimnu, said the order had been lifted in the state except in Numan and Lamurde Local Government Areas.

 The statement urged the people of Adamawa to live in peace with one another.

 The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) recalls that the state government imposed the curfew in the wake of killings in Mubi and Yola towns.

 The mayhem sparked off sectarian violence in some villages in Numan, Lamurde, Girei and Guyuk local government areas.
