“The military and the government are doing what was expected of them and called for commendation, but then there are unpatriotic elements that are sabotaging the efforts, governments to as a matter of urgency investigate and bring them to book for lawful actions.

” It is very worrisome,this banditry activities could lead to famine, poverty as farmers are regularly killed while in their farmlands, look,there is a village where no single chicken is left as a result of banditry,how on earth can this people survive? how can they look back and forget what has happened to their families, their agro produces?
