“We hunters are capable of fighting terrorists. We have traditional powers, which make us different from others in curbing terrorism in Nigeria.
“The policemen and the soldiers do not have what we have, and that is why some of them lose their lives in the process of fighting the terrorists.
“The Federal Government should also consider us because we are doing a great job for them, we are not relenting. Most of the time we are always in the bush working diligently for the government.”
