Sequel to the brutal murder of twenty Igbo people who had gone to attend a communal meeting in Mubi, Adamawa State on Friday, as well as another gun attack which killed six people in a church in Yola, the state government has imposed a dusk to dawn curfew. According to the Commissioner for Information, Alhaji Abdulrahaman Jimeta, the curfew which takes effect from Saturday affects towns like Michika, Gombi, Numan and Mubi.
Though the dastardly act is believed to have been committed by members of the Boko Haram sect, Governor Murtala Nyako has announced that whoever can provide information that would lead to the arrest of the perpetrators will receive a N 25 million reward.
Incidentally, governorship elections are scheduled to hold in the state on Saturday, January 14. It is already being insinuated by some sections of the political class that the crisis might be part of a grand plot to rig the elections.
