SLA personnel, ignored protests by the villagers and RDS officials as they set about moving material from the RDS building to the new camp site. In addition the SLA personnel cut down several palmyra and coconut trees to Strengthen their forward defence lines and sentry points in the area, residents complained.

The SLA established its camp at the Kayankerni Government school in the village in 1990.
