One person has been killed and four more others injured in the Abyei road ambush.
An incident happened on Saturday between Abyei town and Amiet market road after suspected shooters ambushed a commercial vehicle.
Area Commissioner of Ameth Aguok County in the Abyei region, Mr. Nyok Deng Rou, said six suspects believed to be Messiriyia men were arrested by UNISFA security forces. It is not clear what motivated such a horrible attack.
Authority said the wife and daughter of the deceased were among the passengers wounded during the incident.
The suspects were said to be apprehended in the forest about distant 3 kilometers from the scene.
“I am urging the government of two countries, South Sudan and Sudan, to look after people who do not respect the law in Abyei. We are people of peace, and we do not want any problem to happen between us, and our neighbor’s commissioner warned.
According to the commissioner, Messiriyia peace committee members denied detained suspects involvement in road ambush.
They promised to trace those who are behind the rampant killing.
