Normalcy returns to Mubi, Adamawa

01 October 2012, 15:23

Mubi - Normalcy is gradually returning to Mubi in Adamawa, following the security beef up to contain the killing and destruction of communication masts in the town.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the security beef up facilitated a clamp down on the perpetrators of the acts by a joint Army, Police and SSS team in an operation code-named "Operation Restore Sanity."

NAN also reports that many arrests and recovery of arms, including Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs), were also recorded during the operation.

The success of the operation prompted the state government to relax the three- day, 24-hour curfew on the town by nine hours.

Many residents of the town, who spoke to NAN, said the development had brought some sense of security to residents of the town and hoped that things would change for the better.

"We hope and pray that we have seen the last of this calamity which had affected us badly," Abdul Ibrahim, a resident, said.

Ibrahim called for further relaxation of the present 6 a.m to 3 p.m curfew to  6 a.m to 6 p.m, to enable residents more time to look for means of sustaining themselves.

On his own, Joseph Bala, another resident, also called on the government to further reduce the curfew's duration.

He urged the residents to put faith in God and continue to pray for lasting peace in the town and the country in general.
