The Adamawa Government has banned the operations of Professional Hunters Association of Nigeria across the 21 local government areas of the state.
The action is contained in a statement issued by Mr Humwashi Wonosikou, the Press Secretary to Gov. Ahmadu Fintiri on Monday in Yola.
According to the statement, Fintiri outlawed the association following reports of abuse of rules of engagement and security threats by the hunters.
Fintiri said recent happenings in Demsa, Numan, Lamurde, Guyuk and Shelleng Local Government Areas forced the government to take the immediate action.
