Our people back home do monitor them, and once they leave Maiduguri, we would be alerted so that we can be on the lookout. Once they arrive any community in Lagos, our members are always on ground to fish them out based on intelligence report and once they are arrested, we hand them over to security agencies for further investigation and prosecution”he said
