Fufore is a town and Local Government Area of Adamawa State, Nigeria.

In 2014, people fleeing violence in Gwoza built a new town in Fufore, at the existing hamlet of Daware (or Damare), off the Yola-Mubi highway. "The condition given for their stay in Daware was that no temporary tents will be erected as the new residents have been allotted both farm and building plots to begin normal life."[1] A school was set up at Damare Camp for the children, with teachers volunteering from the Modibbo Adama University of Technology, Yola, and American University of Nigeria, Yola.[2]
