Governor Fintiri of Adamawa State
By Joseph Adahnu, Yola
Governor Ahmadu Fintiri of Adamawa State says anyone who hides behind criminal elements to upturn the peace of the state, will find it hot.
This followed the allegation that some persons in the state are sponsoring criminals to unleash mayhem and upturn the existing peace in the state.
Governor Fintiri made this known in a statement signed by the Chief Press Secretary, Humwashi Wonosikou in Yola the state capital.
According to the Governor, there’s credible intelligence report about some youths who are gearing up to break into government and private warehouses in the state, noting that his government will deal firmly with those out to threaten citizens over their personal interest.
“We will not as a Government stand by and watch hoodlums and their sponsors incite citizens to take the Law into their hands.
“I will not fold my arms and watch anyone or any group(s) of people trying to sabotage the Government,” Governor Fintiri said.
He wondered why they are refusing to utilise available channels to address their concerns and instead planning to engage in acts of sabotage.
