The security adviser further said that the state was over time witnessing the hit and run attack from the bandits.

He disclosed that most of their recent attacks were “targeted at Livestock Guards probably to intimidate them from doing their work” but said such would not deter them.


Hemba said that due to a lack of security personnel to cover the entire state at all times, the bandits were taking advantage of it to attack vulnerable places.
