“We are deeply concerned by reports of the barbaric killing of an innocent youth in Molubar Boma of Lado Payam in Juba County,” Wani said.

“This senseless act of violence reportedly carried out by land grabbers represents a deliberate disregard for human life and the rule of law.”

“We condemn this heinous act in the strongest terms and demand that those responsible be swiftly brought to Justice.”

The acting spokesperson of the Security Committee, Mogga Franco Wani said the government is addressing the issue of individuals taking law into them owns hands.

“We are only facing challenges on the issue of land grabbing, and as such, we have realized in the suburbs of Juba, there are people who have taken the laws into their hands,” he said.

“In these cases, his excellency has directed the security organs in the state to step forward and make sure these issues are addressed within the shortest time possible.”
