Adamawa: Ag Gov. Visits Obasanjo’s Wounded Son As Transport Fare Increases By 400%

Fintiri-UmarAdamawa Acting Gov. Ahmadu Fintiri on Tuesday commended officers and men of the Nigerian Army for their effort in containing insurgency in the state.

Mr. Fintiri lauded the armed forces when he visited Adeboye Obasanjo, son of former President Olusegun Obasanjo who was shot Monday by Boko Haram militants.

The younger Obasanjo is recuperating from injuries at the Federal Medical Centre, Yola after the attack.

He sustained injuries in a battle to repel Boko Haram insurgents in Bazza town of Michika Local Government Area of the state.

Mr. Fintiri was received at the hospital by the Chief Medical Director, Aliyu Danburam, who said Mr. Obasanjo was recuperating and in stable condition.

Meanwhile, transport fares have sky rocketed in Adamawa State following the mass movement of people from the northern part of the state to other parts as a result of threats from the insurgents.

Our correspondent reports that transport fare from Mubi to Yola has risen by 400 per cent.

“We used to pay N1, 000 from Mubi, but today I paid N5, 000”, said Aliyu Buba, a student from Mubi.
