March 20, 2014 (JUBA) – Authorities of Duk county in South Sudan’s Jonglei state have appealed to armed opposition forces to release a pastor they allegedly took hostage two days ago.

An official said Pastor Mawut Deng and three other women were on Tuesday abducted from their homes in Pajut, Panyang payam; a rebel stronghold bordering Uror county.

“They are innocent,” Elijah Mocnom Wuor told Sudan Tribune by phone on Thursday.

Duk county has recently witnessed fierce fighting between armed opposition forces and local youth. The rebels were allegedly repulsed out of the country last week.

Jonglei, the country’s largest and most populous state was one of the regions badly hit when violence broke out in the South Sudan capital, Juba in mid-December last year killing over 10,000 and displacing close to a million people in the new nation.

    Maybe the pastor and his two ladies have voluntarily defected to the rebels. Why do you call it an abduction without first finding out what happened? Shame on you.

Now, the next target is Nasir and after that Nuer will start surrendering crazy like flies.We Jieng do not killed friends and capable leaders other few nuer leaders with us would have gone if that is a nuer kingdom.
