“We believe they are recruiting new recruits to continue their criminal operations unhindered. We are consequently afraid, as we recollect a member of the Boko Haram sect being arrested in this region. “And the house they rented, a former lodge, is not far from the house where the sect member was arrested,” one of the residents explained.

Regarding the development, Isah Mustapha, a resident of the region, emphasized the importance of ongoing observation of their activities in order to clear the neighborhood of criminals.
