Ortom stated that the dialogue of all stakeholders was needed to sustain peace in Agatu, and maintained that ranching remained the permanent solution to the perennial clashes between farmers and herders.
He, however, noted that since it was a long-term measure, dialogue remained the only way to achieve peaceful coexistence.
He called on youths in the area that are still in possession of illegal arms and were using them for criminal activities to surrender them or face arrest and prosecution.
He noted that the police and soldiers drafted to the area are to secure it since there were no bases for any self help by any group.
