Gunmen operating in Wau were reported to have attacked commercial vehicles along Raja-Wau Road last Saturday leaving two dead, two injured and several others missing, the State Local Government confirmed yesterday.
“On October 6, 2018 rebels laid an ambush on four commercial vehicles coming from Raja inside Wau Municipal Council in Loloko killing one civilian and an assistant driver,” Wau State Minister of Local Government, Law Enforcement Agencies and Parliamentary Affairs Arkangelo Anyar Anyar said in a press conference in Juba.
He said two people wounded were attending medical treatment in Wau. He said several others are still missing.
“We, the State Government, strongly condemn these aggressive acts in the strongest term possible and urge the CTSAMM, regional and international community for an immediate intervention,” Minister Anyar added.
“We also urge all the arm groups that are part of this peace agreement to join hands with the State government to clear out such enemies of peace from these areas.”
Anyar said the State government was committed to the terms of the peace agreement in spirit and letter.
However, Minister Anyar did not specify to which group the perpetrators were allied to as many rebel groups are operating in the country. No rebel groups had claimed responsibility over the attacks either.
