AYO condemns Kma clash
Expressing strong condemnation over Monday’s factional clash in the civilian populated area of Jail Colony Kohima, Angami Youth Organisation (AYO) fervently appealed to all factions to “cease bloodshed between them”.

 AYO through its president Khrielievi Chüsi, appealed to the “sensibilities of the national workers” to heed the voice of the public across Naga inhabited areas   and “shun bloodshed and vengeance” between brothers.

AYO also impressed upon the state government to ensure safety of people by preventing casualty of innocent civilians during factional clashes.

AYO pointed out that since the  onset of festive season, ushered by the Hornbill Festival, followed by Christmas and New Year were “the time and tide” of peace among all and therefore urged upon all Naga political groups to “exercise restraint and tolerance” in the larger Naga interests.

AYO also urged upon Kohima district administration and law enforcement agencies to enforce law and order and public safety without hesitation.

It also affirmed to stand steadfast by the district administration while endeavouring to maintain law and order the capital and the district AYO also requested public to extend cooperation with the district administration and law enforcement agencies to ensure a peaceful environment for all citizens.

ZAYO condemns Zbto clash
Zunheboto Area Youth Organization (ZAYO) has condemned the factional clash that occurred November 18 at Xukhepu village, Zunheboto, in which killing one senior citizen was killed.

In a press release, ZAYO president Semto L Sumi stated the gun battle in civilian populated area was a “misdemeanor” and “barbaric” that deserved the highest condemnation.

The incident occurred while the villagers were returning from church after attending the proposed fasting and prayer for the upcoming platinum jubilee celebration.

Asserting that perpetrating such heinous crime even on Sunday was beyond human comprehension, ZAYO said whatever maybe the reason behind the clashes, they must at all time bear in mind that the peaceful environment of the general public was not disturbed by any means.

The organization further articulated that “triggering war” in public places and killing the public on several occasions predominantly in Zunheboto district despite frequent appeal made by various Sumi frontal organizations was a “great contempt to the Sumi community”.

It also maintained that frequent clashes in human inhabited areas created “unease and mental torment to the inhabitants”, adding that the “protracted endurance” of the Sumis should not be “misconstrued”.

Reminding that Nagas under the banner of FNR, with prayer support from all the Nagas, have been endeavouring their best to bring all the factions together, ZAYO appealed to the warring groups to positively respond to the call of the entire Nagas. 

Expressing discontentment with the warring factions for turning Zunheboto into a battle field, ZAYO urged all “right thinking national workers” to follow the “guiding principle of forgive and forget; the premier guideline of ethical behaviour of all mankind”.
