Adamawa Government has cautioned the public against rumour mongering capable of raising tension in the state.

A statement by Mr Maxwell Dukku, the Press Secretary to the Governor, said government attention had been drawn to rumours making round that part of Yola was under attack.

“This is mere false alarm and unfounded. The government appeals to all citizens to remain calm and go about their legitimate activities.

“Government and the security agencies are doing everything possible to ensure peace and the safety of all and sundry in the state,” the statement said.

It urged the people to report any suspicious movement or activity to the nearest security outpost in their locality.

It also urged all Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) including those staying with their relations to endeavour to register at the camps for proper identification and easy contact.

Meanwhile, the state government also reviewed the initial 11:00 pm to 5:00 am curfew in the state to 9:00 pm to 5:00am.

A statement by Secretary to the State Government, Mr Ibrahim Welye, said the development was due to “current security situation in the state”.
