Karma noted that the attackers have adopted a guerilla warfare strategy which is difficult to predict when they would attack, and appealed to security agencies to adopt strategies to deal with the situation to enable their people go back to their normal lives.
"Security agencies deployed here are trying their best, I must commend them, but I want them to come out with strategies to enable IDPs especially from Tutuwa community to go back to their homes.
"I know they cannot be everywhere, but they can do something to give the people confidence to go back to their homes.
"Our security personnel cannot be everywhere to protect, but I think they cannot be totally helpless," he said.
The Council Chairman commended officers of the joint security task force made up of the Army, Police, Civil Defence, Navy and DSS who are conducting joint security operation in the area for their professional conduct, and called on people in the state to support them.
