Lou Nuer Youth Association in Juba has strongly condemned the
attack launched by Murle people between Akobo county and Walgak
Murle armed men launched another surprised attack to Lou Nuer
people who were trekking with their children, cattle and other
essential properties following a long settlement s in grazing
field along Pibor River of Akobo east where they spent dry
season with their animals, on their way from Akobo to Western
part of Akobo this morning they were ambushed by Murle
where murle armed men fired indiscriminately killing many
children and women, scattering small number of men who were
escorting them because they were outnumbered.
This attack was so tragic in term of human lives claimed, in
which children were killed intentionally and others were
abducted, many women are said to have been killed according to
report on the ground this morning.
Yesterday, western part of Akobo was also attacked in which huge
numbers of people were left on the ground, all the houses were

Government in Khartoum and NCP leadership is supplying Murle
with ammunitions and other military hardware to wage countless
attack Lou Nuer and cause insecurity in the state.
NCP wants to destabilize South Sudan by all means so that the
long awaited independent day 9th July will not be celebrated
happily by the people of south Sudan.
Independent days are now less then 3 weeks and Jonglei state
never experience a stability following last year election which
led to the several rebellions in different part of south Sudan
against GOSS in which many people were caught up in the
fighting and got killed either directly or indirectly.
Therefore, we urge GOSS of South Sudan to deal not only with NCP
in Khartoum but, with Murle which become another NCP in the
south, Arabs in Khartoum are directly supporting Murle community
so that insecurity in south Sudan becomes order of the day,
which sends signal to the international community that GOSS
leadership is unable to curb the widespread insecurity issues in
the south and in Jonglei State in particular.
We need our Government in Juba to introduce amicable policy to
disarm civilians who are holding arms illegally in south Sudan
and in Jonglei in Particular, Kuol Manyaang failed to to restore
security in the state, he never pays a visit to any place where
there is fighting or other related problem.
