The fighting erupted just day after the two states; Warrap and Western Bahr el Ghazal promised to maintained peace and security.

Houses belonging to some tribes were targeted and set on fire by some local youth who were angry that their relatives were killed in Parajallah in Bagari.

The state security forces are trying to dispatch the angry youth.

State government has not yet released any statement on whether there are some casualties but sources say some two teachers have been killed at Hai Palata.

Last week, 26 people were killed in Balanda farms at Parajallah in Bagari Payam.

On Monday this week, Warrap state governor Nyandeng Malek held a political talks with Western Bahr el Ghazal state Governor Rizik Zackaria Hassan focusing on providing and maintaining security to enhance peace coexistence between the two states.

On Tuesday, the two governors held a public rally at the Eastern Bank gathered by hundreds of angry youth from three states Warrap, Northern Bahr el Ghazal and Western Bahr el Ghazal states who stages to go for retaliation against their 26 men slaughtered in Parajallah.  

The move behind killing remains unclear since 7 suspects of killers in Parajallah including traditional chiefs are under arrests by the state authority while investigation committee from council of states led by Hon. David Ukuir Akuey from Juba are at the critical fact finding mission in Wau.

It is also mentioned that South Sudan Deputy Interior Minister Salva Mathok and Inspector General, Achuil Tito are in Wau.
