3 killed in Cueibet County raid

At least three people have been reportedly killed and an unknown number of cattle stolen in Cueibet County by suspected fortified aggressors from bordering Rumbek North County of Lakes State.

The Payam director of Abiriu Payam, Cueibet County Laat Marial Wul told Radio Tamazuj that two cattle possessors from Cueibet County and one aggressor from Rumbek North were killed in the clashes.
Marial said a huge herd of cattle was stolen.

“The raided cattle are from three sections of the Gok community of Waat, Kongor, and Pagok. It’s a lot of cattle that have been raided and I can not estimate their number. I’m staying for the chiefs who have gone to the scene of the incident to bring us a report,”he said.
For his part, Lakes State information minister William Koji Kerjok told Radio Tamazuj on Wednesday that the raided cattle must be returned and culprits charged.

“The raided cows must be returned by the security forces to the due possessors and such an incident shouldn’t be again,”he added.
He said the state has dispatched forces to probe the deadly raid and forestall farther clashes.
