There is relative fear at the Adamawa Government House following investigations being carried out by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
The anti-graft agency stormed the state and interrogated four top government officials, Vanguard reported.
The report quoted sources as saying officials of the EFCC moved into the state from their zonal office in Gombe for routine duties.
But these officials have reportedly remained in the state since last week and this is causing panic.
Some of the sources said the anti-graft agency was acting on a petition written against some of the officials for alleged multi-million naira contract scam.
The scam, according to the report, was allegedly discovered to be carried out in the current administration.
The report said those interrogated were granted bail after the drilling, but they were asked to report at the Gombe zonal office.
Wilson Uwujaren, the spokesperson of the EFCC, said he would confirm the development, but had not done that at the time of this report.
