The Adamawa State government has lifted the 24-hour curfew that was imposed after food storage and other warehouses were looted in Yola on Sunday.
Following the unrest, the police arrested more than 100 suspects, who will face legal charges as a deterrent to others involved in such activities.
The decision to ease the curfew was made during a meeting between security chiefs and government officials, headed by the state’s deputy governor, Kaletapwa Farauta.
The new curfew now runs from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. and will be reviewed hourly to maintain peace and security in the state.
An increased security presence will be maintained to ensure compliance with the government’s directives and prevent any further disruptions by criminals.
