The Paramount Ruler stated that some of the Youth perpetrating the act sworn an oath before now but they are surprised that some of them went back to their old ways.

Chief Jonathan  maintained that the community is willing to train any of the warring Youth in skill acquisition if the person shuns criminality while calling on the Government to come to their aide.
