This order excludes checkpoints bordering neighbouring states. However, they would be closed for vehicular movement from 12 midnight to 6 am.

Although Gombe is in the conflict-ravaged North East, it has no record of insurgency except for thuggery. The state authority had taken several steps to contain the nefarious activities of the thugs, yet they seems unrestrained.
