There had been a prison break in Ganye, Adamawa State.
Following Friday’s attack in Ganye in Adamawa State, which led to the death of 25 persons, the police in Adamawa have tightened security in Yola, the state capital.
Various check points have emerged on major streets of the state capital leading to traffic gridlock.
When contacted on the development, the command’s Public Relations Officer, Mohammed Ibrahim, said the measure was a proactive one.
Mr. Ibrahim said, “you saw what happened in Ganye; we don’t want to take any chances.”
“We need the public support and understanding to ensure security of lives and properties,” he added.
So far, no fewer than nine out of the 21 local government areas of the state had been attacked within the past one year.
