Yola - The Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS) has shut three of its offices in Adamawa because of insurgency.

The organisation also said that it lost revenue worth hundreds of millions of naira due to the insecurity in the state.

Malam Sadig Mohammed, the Tax Controller in charge of FIRS Micro and Small Tax Office, Yola, made the disclosure on Monday in Yola.

Mohammed said that the affected offices were located in Mubi North, Madagali and Michika Local Government Areas.

He expressed concern that the development was adversely affecting the revenue generation of the office in the state considering the business activities in the areas.

"The insecurity being witnessed in the North-East region and some parts of the state in particular has forced the FIRS to shut down three of its offices in Mubi North, Madagali and Michika.
