“These criminals use the thick forests as hideouts and major highways as staging areas to perpetuate their nefarious activities along highways,   major roads, adjoining towns and villages.

“As a result of their dastardly acts, some remote villages were completely   deserted, causing the residents to abandon their ancestral domains to unknown destinations for their safety.

“In  response  to  these  re-emerging  security concerns,  the Division launched Operation Karamin Goro to clear the remnants of the criminals from their bases and ensure the safety of lives, properties and  safe movement of the people within these general areas,’’ Dole said.

Mr Dole said arrangements and measures had been put in place to ensure safe passage of persons, motorists and their properties along the areas of operation.
