According to officials at Pariak village, the administrative headquarters of Panwel, two concurrent attacks were carried out by a group of suspected Murle criminals, killing one man while he was herding his cattle.

“We are not sure whether they are from the group of Yau Yau or just criminals from Murle who came and killed one man who was herding cattle, 50 heads of cattle and took the cattle,” said Mach Kucha Awar, the head chief from Pariak Boma on phone.

“The army commando has sent a platoon after them but returned after exchanging gunfire with the criminals. They ran and the army brought one gun that was thrown away by one of the criminals,” he explained.

He added that another group caught the men who went out to cut some trees, and killed him before they confiscated 16 heads of cattle.

The two young men were taking their cattle to the Jonglei-Central Equartoria state border where they were planning to transport them by a vehicle to Juba.

On Sunday, criminals collected more than 50 heads of cattle at Anyidi villages but with help from the South Sudan army, few of the cattle were covered from the criminals.

There were very few cases of such incidents in March as there was no water that could help the criminal to survive in the bush and now the rain season is just about to begin, many people in Bor are worried about the insecurity.

Last week, the SPLA announced that they were almost through with offensive against the rebels saying Jonglei would be a peaceful state but raids and other criminal activities remain a threat.
