Commissioner Enocka says the three men are in police custody and undergoing investigations.

“Until yesterday 13 were arrested and 10 were released, except the 3 whose cases are connected to guns and bullets”

“That means these are the types of people who are criminals. ”

Mr. Enocka says situation in Yambio has remained tense.
