The release mentions that, it is unfortunate even after the Covenant of Reconciliation signed at the highest level and the subsequent meetings and interaction at the various levels involving the civil societies, the Muivah gang continued their policy of killing and bloodbaths unabated among the Naga brethrens, in complete disregard to the Naga people. Therefore, the Naga Army was moved out to check and control the crimes committed by the gangsters in the areas. It is, completely an act of defense by the Naga Army from the criminals who are bent on sucking the blood of the Nagas and not at all an offensive. Had they not committed the crimes post, the Covenant of Reconciliation, the situation would have been completely different. The Muivah boys are squarely responsible for everything that is unfolding today and we vow that, we will not hesitate to go to any extent to defend our people and our land from the criminals, the release concluded.
