"It is deeply concerning that there are masked
individuals on the streets of the city. It must be condemned by all
political representatives across Londonderry and a united message sent
out that those responsible should face the full weight of the law.
There never was any justification for masked men on our streets whether it was in 1972 or in 2022.
I want to see Northern Ireland moving forward together rather than be dragged back by gunmen and thugs."
