This gradually is becoming a recipe for disaster. Our intelligence agencies must be proactive and infiltrate the camp of these people . The Ministries of the Interior , Defense , National Security and the BNI need to have their ears to the grounds and have eyes on this group . Drones should be constantly flying over such areas to pick visuals of the situation on the ground
