The source said, “It is unfortunate these monsters have destroyed the local economy thereby subjecting their victims to all sorts of misery.
“These criminals attack their victims at will; unfortunately and ironically without the slightest hindrance, resistance or confrontation from the authorities concerned. Sadly, defenceless, unarmed and peaceful locals have been abandoned to their fate; wallowing in perpetual agony.”
