Gov Fintiri Declares 24-hour Curfew As Adamawa Residents Loot Warehouses

Gov Finitri

Adamawa State Governor, Ahmadu Fintiri has imposed a 24-hour curfew on the State.

The governor announced the decision on Sunday.

This is after the escalating attacks of hoodlums breaking into warehouses and carting away foodstuffs and other valuables.

Fintiri on his verified Twitter handle said the government took the action as a precaution to prevent the escalating violence by hoodlums attacking people and businesses.

The PUNCH in 2020 reported the looting of a government-owned warehouse at Kwana-waya by angry residents, who later broke into the Central stores located at Barkin Kogi and looted food items.

The governor said, “Effective immediately Sunday, July 30, 2023, I, Governor Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri, have declared a 24-hour curfew in Adamawa State due to escalating violence by hoodlums attacking people and businesses.

“No movement is allowed, except for essential duties with valid ID. Your safety is our priority – please comply for the well-being of all,” he wrote.
