Adamawa state government is to set-up committee of enquiry to look into the communal crisis between Lunguda and Waja Communities in the state.

Last month 23 persons were allegedly killed, while 35 others arrested, as five communities were burnt as a result of the crisis between the two tribes.

A dusk to dawn curfew was imposed on Friday on  Guyuk and Lamurde LGAs,  as a measure to contain  escalation, following a renewed crisis in the area.

Governor Ahmadu Fintiri, at a  security meeting Monday at the  Palace of Kwandi Nungurya, directed for thorough investigation to unravel the immediate and remote course of the communal unrest.

Fintiri  vowed that, perpetrators of the crisis would face the full wrath of the law, to serve as deterrent to others.

He pointed out that,  government would not relent in its efforts  towards to ensure peace, saying that the ugly trend  must be stopped.

The  state would host  regional security summit with Gombe state  to develop a peace pact for the overall benefit of the border communities.

Earlier, Kwandi Nunguraya kuruhaye Dishon Dansanda II, urged  the warring group to embrace  peace, having been together for decades.

Mallam Gambo Jika, State Chairman Muslim Council and his Christian counterpart, Bishop Dami Mamza, both sue for peace and tranquility.

Fintiri also visited IDP camp in  Central Primary School, where he assured them of government readiness to return them back to their ancestral homes.

The security  meeting was attended by stakeholders and service chiefs in the state.
