The Governor of Adamawa State, Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri, has reviewed the curfew imposed on Yola North, Yola South and Girei Local Government Areas of the state.
The curfew had been imposed to curtail the activities of hoodlums and other criminals using tricycles and motorcycles in the LGAs.
The curfew which was from 10 pm to 5 am daily is now eased to commence from 12 midnight to 5 am daily throughout the Ramadan period.
The governor noted that the review takes effect immediately.
"The development is to enable the Muslim faithful partake in tafsir sessions during the period", Fintiri added.
As contained in a statement on Thursday by Humwashi Wonosikou, spokesperson to the governor, "The order is meant to check the excesses of hoodlums terrorising the areas prescribing a sentence of six months imprisonment with an option of fine or both in addition to forfeiting the Tricycle or Motorcycle.
"The review of the Restriction of movement is necessitated by the desire of the Government to allow Muslim faithful observe unhindered Tafsir at their various Mosques during the Ramadan period.
"Governor Fintiri however directed security agencies to beef up security across the State especially in the three councils of Yola North, Yola South and Girei by deploying more service personnel to keep watch and ensure the security of lives and property of residents of the State, warning that anyone found wanting will be made to face the wrath of the law."
While wishing the Muslim faithful a peaceful Ramadan, Fintiri urged residents of the state to maintain the peace currently enjoyed in the state.
