The Adamawa State Government has relaxed the curfew imposed on some communities of Guyuk Local Government Area following recent disturbances in the area and the neighbouring Lamurde Local Government.
This was contained in a press statement by the Press Secretary to the governor, Himwashi Wonosikou and made available to newsmen on Monday.
However, the relaxation of the curfew excludes Boshikiri and Dumna towns in Guyuk Local Government as well as Lafiya town in Lamurde Local Government Area.
Governor Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri assures that Government will not leave anything to chance until peace is restored to the area, warning that anybody caught flouting the curfew in the three communities of Lafiya, Dumna and Boshikiri will have himself to blame as security agencies have been directed to ensure strict observance of the curfew.
The governor said people must learn to be their brothers keeper especially at this difficult period where the world has been forced to a new normal of keeping to COVID-19 protocols and its attendant economic consequences.
He insists that those sponsoring violence must desist in order for peace to reign.
He appealed to the people to maintain peace, guaranteeing the protection of lives and property of the people.
Governor Fintiri advised residents to exercise restraint and remain calm as the committee set up to investigate the crisis continue with its work, assuring that Government is doing everything possible to maintain peace in the state.
