But few hours to Saturday Governorship and State Assemblies elections, Police in Adamawa state had declared a dusk to dawn curfew across the state, with effect from Sunday and will last till Tuesday, with opposition parties threatened to defy the order. The state commissioner of police Gabriel Adaji on Friday said the decision was taken during a crucial inter agencies security meeting aimed to curtail the breakdown of law and order.
He said the measure was taken, to avert some nasty experiences encountered when the Presidential elections result was announced where miscreants hijacked the celebrations, he said.
He vowed that, the police will enforce the dusk to dawn curfew and anyone found wanting will be dealt with.
The commissioner explained that as it was observed during the presidential polls, movements of vehicles are restricted from 6am to 6pm on Saturday, as there is a total ban on the use of tricycles popularly known as Keke Napep from Saturday to Tuesday.
Also reacting is the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Movement(PDM) Dr Ahmad Modibbo and party members who vowed to resist the imposition of the curfew.
Speaking through his Director General Campaign,Barr. Sunday Joshua Wigra said, as far as we are concerned the move by the police is in vain and will be resisted , he said.
He continued that, it seems police wants to cause problem, because nothing happened during the recent elections, why now!? he asked.
The Secretary of the PDP in the state Barrister A. T. Shehu denied any plan by his party to rig the polls.
He frown at the imposition of the curfew by the police.
According to him there is no just reason why police should impose curfew on the people of the state calling on the commissioner of police to rescind his statement for peace to reign in the state after the polls.
” The police should banned celebration activities after the poll not to impose curfew” he said
In another development APC has raised alarm that it has uncovered a plot by the PDP to make sure that election do not hold in eight local government areas of the state
The local government are, JADA GANYE MAYO BELWA DEMSA YOLA NORTH SONG GOMBI AND HONG.
The publicity coordinator of Bindow campaign organisation Alh Uba Dan Arewa made the allegation on Friday.
According to him ” there are plot by the PDP in collaboration with INEC to make sure that over 100, 000 votes in APC strong hold does not count”
‘It is disingenuous to accuse everyone who calls for restructuring as trying to break up the county. History tells us that that kind of cheap blackmail will not work as long as the underlying reasons for the agitations persist.’
‘The biggest challenge seems to be that we seem to be allowing moderate voices on this issue to be drowned out by the reckless utterances of a few rabble rousers on all sides who may be tools in the hands of those who do not wish this country well. These are some of the people who arrogate to themselves the toga of spokespersons of our diverse groups.’
