He spoke on Tuesday while addressing journalists, saying that residents need to do their best to protect their neighborhood from attacks.
This is also as Masari announced that telecommunication services would soon be restored in affected places and commended the efforts of security agencies and vigilance groups fighting outlaws.

“We must prepare to fight back as individuals; to fight the bandits because they are evil and represent evil.
“By God’s grace we will not handover this country to the next generation of leaders under this condition. We must restore normalcy”, he said.
