“The recurring conflicts and violence particularly communal clash in Lamurde local government and the growing activities of miscreants (Shila boys) in Yola North local government is becoming worrisome which require prompt intervention in the two local governments.

“The commitment of Global Peace Development is contributing its quota to the security architecture of Adamawa State.

“The community peace resilience intervention is aimed at empowering and creating an enabling environment for those communities to own the process that will lead to the promotion of lasting peace in their areas”, Esiki said.
