grooming a militia group, he is arming small boys with guns and other weapons. He deals with anyone that is against him; he kills people easily. He also built a place like a police station where he and his boys beat people and detain them.

“The number of young boys armed with guns working for him currently is more than that of the police and soldiers in this council. Dzunve is untouchable here in Buruku LGA.
