Recruit one battalion each of rigorous trained commandos from only locals of the newly formed districts, construct check points at vulnerable points manned by combined team of central and state forces, increase frequency of ROP by army and state police forces, support SOO signatory rival groups, and get intelligence inputs, go for proactive approach. If central government dnt support, whatever party in power in center, they should be supported at state. Root out these coward gigolos,

Ibobi should not leave the perpetrator free for this crime. As election is knocking at your door, you should at least increase the casualty of IM to win absolute majority.
