15 December 2014, 14:30

Adamawa - Adamawa government has expressed satisfaction with successes recorded so far in dislodging insurgents, who occupied some areas in northern part of the state.

Chubado Tijjani, the Chief of Staff to Governor Bala Ngilari, made this known on Sunday in Mubi.

Tijjani, who was in Mubi on behalf of the government to assess situation in the area said government was happy with the steady recovery of areas occupied by the insurgents.

"Apart from Mubi, Gombi, Maiha and Mararaba we learnt that the military have also taken over Uba and Michika", Tijjani said.

He noted that the state government would soon call for a meeting with security agencies for possible suspension of vehicular movement in areas where the insurgents had been flushed out for the people to return.

"As you know last week we reviewed the initial 9.00 p.m. to 5.00 a.m. curfew in the state to 12 midnight to 5.00 a.m. due to the improvement in security.

"We will soon have a meeting with security agencies with the view to suspend the restriction of vehicular movement in the areas for people to return home,’’ Tijjani said.

He explained that government had commenced a poverty alleviation programme where people from the northern part of the state who were worst affected by the insurgency would be given priority.

Meanwhile, the Emir of Mubi, Abubakar Isa, who returned to his palace on Friday has said that the palace was inhabitable because most of the facilities including doors had been vandalized by the insurgents.

"Three of my cars were also stolen. I have to stay somewhere for the vandalized equipments to be replace,’’ the emir said.
