Yola - The Adamawa government has imposed a dusk-to-dawn curfew on Michika Local Government Area of the state following security threats and growing tension in the area.
In a statement signed and issued last night by the Secretary to the State Government, Kobis Thimnu, the government said the curfew was with effect from April 30.
The statement also announced a ban on the use of motorcycles in the area during the period.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that there had been growing tension in Michika following two separate attacks by gunmen in which one person was killed and three others sustained injuries.
Mr Mohammed Ibrahim, the Public Relation Officer of the state police command, said on Sunday that gunmen on motorcycle had opened fire on people in an area, killing one person and injuring another.
``Prompt reaction by the police led to the killing of one of the gunmen and recovery of some weapons,’’ he said.
Ibrahim said on Monday that gunmen on motorcycle had opened fire on farmers in a village, injuring two persons.
