Rosie Cowan adds detail to this growing story. One senior paramilitary speaking about controversial paramilitary leader, Johnny Adair told her:
“…the chances of someone trying to kill Adair, who has survived several republican and loyalist murder attempts, were extremely high. ‘That would be a nightmare, because it would turn him into a martyr, like Billy Wright. Lots more people would die in his name and families would be torn apart. The UDA motto is Quis Separabit – Who will separate us? Now we know.'”
