Indefinite economic blockade under the Yimchunger jurisdiction started Friday in protest against the abduction of two executive members of the Yimchunger Tribal Council (YTC) by the FGN on Wednesday. The blockade is being imposed by the Yimchunger Akhuru Arih-ako (YAA) and would continue till the release of the duo and arrest of those involved. The two executive members of the YTC namely, Yankiamong and Shitu GB of Thonokyu village were abducted by the combined “Federal Army and so called Limitsong group (terrorist) from the residence of Khuingakiu, Village Council Chairman Thonoknyu village for no any reason.” Denouncing the abduction, the Yimchunger Tribal Council, the apex body of the Yimchunger community has demanded the FGN to immediately release their members and threatened to take its own course of action as per the YTC resolution, if their demands were not met. The Council has asked the authorities to arrest the particular commander of FGN and to hand over those involved in the incident to the YTC within 3 days from the date of the publication of this statement. The YTC also questioned as to why the factions were not restoring peace even as the ENPO resolution made on December 18, 2007 declared not to torture, kidnap or kill under the ENPO jurisdiction. The YTC also strongly supported the decision taken by the YAA for indefinite economic road blockade under the Yimchunger jurisdiction. Meanwhile, the YAA has questioned the FGN’s motive behind the kidnapping and has also strongly supported the demands of the YTC to respond positively within three days and to arrest the culprits immediately. The YAA has threatened not to cooperate with the FGN the demands were not met. The district administration, medical, para military, ENPO, and ENSF have been exempted from the purview of the bandh. The Yimchungru Hoho has also supported the demands of the YAA and urged the law enforcing agencies to immediately bring the culprits to book.
