The 23 Brigade of Nigerian Army in Yola has counseled the Christian community in Adamawa State to ensure that their end of year Church services on Tuesday is rounded-up by 10pm.
The advice was contained in a statement signed by the Brigade’s Public Relations Officer, Capt. Ja’aafaru Nuhu.
Capt. Nuhu said the advice was necessary so that church goers will not flout the existing 11pm to 5am curfew still in force in the state.
“The Headquarters of 23 Brigade wishes to bring to the notice of the general populace of Adamawa State that the imposition of curfew from 11pm to 5am daily is still in force.
“While we all know the importance of night prayers, especially at the last day of the year, we need to consider the best interest of the general public”, the statement said.
Capt. Nuhu pledged the commitment of security agencies in the state to the safety of life and property and urged the public to sustain its support and cooperation towards the goal.
Adamawa, North-East Nigeria, has been under curfew since the declaration of state of emergency in May.
