“I plead with authorities concerned to deploy drones, identify flash areas and engage this fearless armed militia that had been killing innocent people in our rural communities.

“What is more worrisome is that the attackers started operation around 4 p.m.,’’ he said.

“The people are completely devastated while the affected village and neighbouring communities are being dessert for fear of the unknown,’’ Mugu added.

The lawmaker, however, commended the state government for its efforts in addressing the challenge, but urged it to take proactive steps in putting an end to the menace.

He urged the bereaved families and affected community to take solace in God and resist any thought of taking the laws into their hands.
