Tsamdu said:

 “The effort made by our young hunters yesterday is commendable. Reports reaching me say they have arrested three members of Boko Haram in Gulak.”

‘’The Local Hunters in Madagali are joining forces with those from Gombi areas to chase them (Boko Haram) out of our own territory.”

“The locals from Gombi seems to know the terrain and the hide out of this wicked people. Their coming will equally boost the morale of those youths from Madagali and other areas for the fight against the insurgents.”
