“We can assure you that we are making every effort to ensure that the state remain peaceful,” Nwaoga said.
He noted that there would be no development where “there is no peace and where there is suspicion and mistrust’’ and urged the people to remain united and committed to check any group or individual trying to disturb the peace.
“A lot of people are trooping into the state; some of them are bad. We will partner with you to sift the bad ones, while accepting the good ones to help develop your state,” Nwaoga said.
Responding, Nyako commended the role being played by security agencies and religious leaders in promoting peace in the state and assured them of his government’s support “at all time in order to sustain the tempo’’.
It would be recalled that on Dec. 23 some locally made bombs were detected and diffused around three churches in Mubi, while the fourth one placed in a hotel in the commercial border town went off, injuring a lady.
The incident, which drew widespread condemnation from the people of Adamawa, was the first of its kind in the state. NAN
