The Chief Imam of Police Barrack Mosque in Yola, ASP Ahmed Suleiman, has urged Muslims to be extra vigilant and report any suspicious person or thing to the authorities.

Suleiman made the call during a sermon at the mosque in Yola on Friday.

He called on worshippers to stop bringing bags or things that would cause suspicion to mosques or crowded places.

“You also need to cooperate with security operatives who are out to protect you’’, Suleiman said.

The advice came against the backdrop of the bomb blast in which more than 30 people lost their lives and about 50 sustained injuries opposite the Jimeta Modern Market on Thursday. NAN reports that the Friday prayer was observed peacefully throughout the city.

Meanwhile, a Federal Government delegation, comprising the Director General of NEMA, Alhaji Sani Sidi and Inspector General of Police, Mr Solomon Arase, had visited Yola to commiserate with the Government and people of Adamawa.
