Gov. Ahmadu Fintiri of Adamawa on Sunday declared a 24-hour curfew on the state with immediate effect.
The governor made the declaration in a statement issued by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Humwashi Wonosikou in Yola.
The curfew followed wide scale looting and attacks on citizens by hoodlums.

“With the curfew imposed, there will be no movement throughout the state.
“Only those on essential duties with valid identification would be permitted to move around during the period of the curfew,” he added.
