The afflicted markets, according to him, are the Kusasu, Iburo, and Chukuba markets.
According to him, “Dogo Gide also told the people that he would be in charge of all the revenue collection in the markets, and the people agreed because they have no choice, at least if that is what will make them live in peace.
“He also asked all the communities that fled from their homes as a result of incessant attacks in the areas to return back. He promised them that nobody would attack them henceforth after they agreed with his terms.”
Recall that barely one month ago, about eight communities in the area surrendered themselves to the leadership of the bandit warlord and pledged their loyalty and allegiance to the group.
