Adamawa State has lifted the ban placed on religious congregations across the state with immediate effect to allow religious bodies to have their normal worship and services.
Governor Umaru Fintiri’s Press Secretary, Humwashi Wonosikou, made this known in a statement to journalists on Thursday.
Wonosikou however, urged all religious leaders to put in place preventive and precautionary measures in their various worship centers in order to contain the outbreak and spread of Coronavirus in the state.
He said, “Governor Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri has eased the restriction on worship places and social gatherings earlier imposed on the state following the outbreak of the Coronavirus pandemic.
“Churches, Mosques and the international cattle markets under lockdown can now reopen.”
The discharge of five COVID-19 patients from the state isolation centres after testing negative for the virus was also announced by him.
Adamawa becomes the second state to lift the ban on religious gatherings, Borno being the first.
