He indicated that even final year Junior High School students have been asked not to return to school over fears that they might be attacked.

“They are armed, they attack you on your farm and if you don’t yield to their demands sometimes they molest you and…shoot you. They can kill you if you resist them…it is affecting economic activities,” he said.
