The ACA, while commending the efforts of government in addressing the situation, enjoined the federal government, Adamawa State government and all other relevant authorities to act fast in bringing the situation under control.

The group said, “We also call on all citizen of Adamawa State and indeed all well-meaning Nigerians to come to the aid of the displaced people by donating in cash and kind through the appropriate Government Agencies, Non-Government Organizations, Faith Based Organizations and Civil Society Organizations, towards the amelioration of the plight of our brothers affected by these disturbances”.
