He said security reports indicate that the protesters have a network through which they communicate to their members whenever they sighted trucks coming to the northern part of the country with food items.

He hinted that this is not the first time that this is happening as the the network usually misled people to come out and collect their palliative before it is diverted.

The Governor acknowledged that the current hardship is not peculiar to the State alone but Government is making efforts to bring succour to the people.
