Imposes 24-hr Curfew As A Result Of Looting

Governor has imposed a 24 -hour curfew on Adamawa State.

This is after the vandalisation of the government property by hoodlums who broke into warehouses to cart away COVID- 19 palliatives.

Fintiri, in his statewide broadcast , said the government took the action as a precaution, following the activities of “ some misguided elements” who have broken into warehouses looting COVID- 19 palliatives.

Earlier on Sunday , The PUNCH 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, “ Reports of people dying in the stampede have been received and we cannot afford to allow anyone to lose his or her life .

“ We must also avoid a scenario where the security agents will be blamed if any person loses his/ her life while being prevented from looting and destroying Government property.
