By Mabor Riak Magok
The Commissioner of Paloch County of Western Lakes State Adhel Jok Dau said twenty one heads of cattle had been recovered from Eastern Lakes State.
She said the cattle were earlier raided from Eastern Lakes State by a group of youth at Paloch and Amokpiny.
In an interview with Juba Monitor, the Commissioner of Paloch County, Madam Adhel Jok Dau said they had planned to return the cattle to the rightful owners during the recent inter-border peace dialogue in Akot but the plan was disrupted by killing of the executive chief, Mayek Biling and his son.
She warned that any anybody found with raided cattle from neighboring state will face the consequences of imprisonment for years with heavy fine and compensations of any lost.
“We are appealing to all the youth to stop revenge killing and cattle raiding and work for peaceful co-existence between the two states,” said Adhel Jok.
Last Sunday, a group of armed youth carried out an attack in Mabor-duang area of Western Lakes State leaving one lady injured in crossfire and two people confirmed dead on both sides.
The insecurity between Eastern and Western Lakes State is reported to be increasing at an alarming rate as passengers allegedly continue to lose lives and women rape along Aluakluak-Akot Road.
