Gov. Fintiri Imposes 24-Hour Curfew As Hoodlums Loot Warehouses

The governor of Adamawa State, Ahmadu Fintiri has declared a 24-hour curfew across the state.

The chief press secretary to the governor, Humwashi Wonosikou, announced the curfew on Sunday afternoon.

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

The governor said the government took the action as a precaution to prevent the escalating violence by hoodlums attacking people and businesses.

He 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.”

Meanwhile, witnesses told newsmen that the looters complained of hardship following the removal of fuel subsidy and the high cost of foodstuff.

“Aside from food items, people were also seen with items such as generator sets, mattresses, and other non-food items were said to have been looted from stores owned by private individuals,” a resident, Manu Haruna said.
