Sueno said:

“There are already intelligence reports of that. Because these are terrorist groups being allegedly funded outside so there is strong possibility that they are already here. There are reports that’s why we are not moving everything. All the preparations we are doing. We are not leaving anything to chance at all as long as we know that there is threat, we consider it already big. That’s why our preparations are also big.”
