The Nigerian Military has relaxed the curfew imposed on Adamawa State by one hour.

The curfew was imposed following the declaration of state of emergency in Adamawa, Borno and Yobe states by President Goodluck Jonathan.

A statement from the Public Relations Officer of the 23rd Armoured Brigade, Yola, Ja’afaru Nuhu, said the Brigade Commander, Fatai Alli, has approved that the curfew be reviewed to commence from 7:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m. with effect from Tuesday.

The military had shortly after the declaration of the emergency rule last week Tuesday imposed a 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. curfew across the state.

Tuesday’s statement further urged the residents to remain law abiding and go about their normal business,

Meanwhile, the Adamawa State Government has reduced it working hours from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. with effect from Tuesday against the normal time of 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
