“The only solution we have now is to ensure the safe return of our people to their homes in a dignified manner.

“If nothing is done believe me sincerely we shall face a very serious challenge even more than what we are facing now.

“This is because right now the insurgents are recruiting many of our children into the sect because of the increasing unemployment rate,” he said.
