Yola—Assistant Inspector-General of Police, in charge of Zone 3, Yola, Mohammed Yabo has asked the factions of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Adamawa State to suspend further political meetings and gatherings until further notice.

“Due to the current security situation in the country, especially in the Northern states, I crave your indulgence to suspend any form of political meetings for now,” Yabo told a meeting of leaders of the two factions, yesterday.

The meeting, called at the instance of the AIG, followed disregard to an earlier order by the state government banning all forms of political gatherings by the caretaker committee of the party put in place by the National Working Committee, NWC, of the party.

Yabo asked the Chairman of the Caretaker Committee to suspend, forthwith, conduct of the remaining congress of the party and halt further political gatherings in the interest of the state and the country.

He said: “Maiha, Hong, Song and Fufore, are all close towns from the state capital and recently they witnessed attacks by unknown gunmen and the police is doing its best to bring the perpetrators to book.

“We, therefore, need your co-operation by suspending all forms of political activities including the ongoing congresses.”
