RAAD issues chilling warning 23.02.12

Report: Inishowen Independent

VIGILANTE group Republican Action Against Drugs (RAAD) has issued a chilling warning to drug dealers that they will face the “ultimate sanction”.
RAAD made the warning as it claimed responsibility for the murder of Andy Allen in Lisfannon, Buncrana, earlier this month.
In a claim made to the Inishowen Independent yesterday, the group said that Mr Allen had received a warning some months ago but alleged he continued with his activities. They also claimed the dead man had been using their name to scare other alleged dealers.
In a chilling development, RAAD said that they intended to shoot another individual on the night in question but police activity forced them to call the operation off.
They said that target had been lucky on that occasion but that he was among six drug dealers who would face the “ultimate sanction”.
Mr Allen (24), a father of two from the Top of the Hill area of Derry’s Waterside, was killed last Thursday week when three masked gunmen attacked him at the home he shared with his partner at Links View, Lisfannon. The fatal shots were fired through a window of a ground floor bedroom after the gunmen failed to gain entry through the door.
The car used by the armed gang was later found burnt out at Church Brae, Fahan.
RAAD said their second target had been lucky but that he was among six alleged drug dealers who would face the “ultimate sanction”.
Shots were fired at two bookmakers in Derry hours before the fatal attack on Allen, and the attendant police activity may have been what disrupted RAAD’s planned attack on its other target.
The group also said they were aware of individuals making threats and warned they would be "extremely ferocious in defence of republicans and their families".
RAAD concluded by calling on all drug dealers to take advantage of the amnesty they were offering.
