May 4, 2014 (TORIT) – The commissioner of Torit county, German Charles Ojok, said on Sunday that revenge attacks between the Bari and Omorwo of Lowudo sub-district boma have resulted in the death of seven people.

Several others sustained injuries and were brought to the state hospital in Torit, commissioner Ojok said after visiting the area.

Over sixteen houses were burned down, he said, describing the "terrible revenge killing" on 1 May as the most unfortunate to occur under his administration.

Of the seven people killed from the the Bari community, three were men and four women.

Commissioner Ojok reiterated that, they have deployed a sizable police force into the two villages to restore peace and security and arrest the suspects of the criminals who carried out the killing and burning of the village.

He called on the Omorowo youth to come out of hiding in the bush and handover the criminals who carried out the attack to the government for justice to take its course.

Commissioner Ojok condemned the incident and said that a temporary sizable police force has been deployed to the village which had arrested nine suspects. An investigation is still ongoing about the violence between the two villages, he said.

Instead of killing children, people should be thinking of development in terms of building schools, hospitals and to maintaining their roads, he said.

    These guys burning houses should join their Nuer colleagues who like this activity rather than killing innocent villagers.

      Please stop spreading liars. Your corrupted government is the one which burn houses. For example, they burned everything in Bentiu when captured it from the rebels in January. Second, the Dinka government soldiers burned everything in Ulang and Nasir when they captured the towns from the rebels two ago. I never see government burning houses in my life. When the South Sudan rebels use to fight Suda

        government, if the Sudan government troops defeated the rebels they did not burn the houses. However, today the south government of alcoholic Salva Kiir is carrying out atrocities against it own people more than any rebel groups on earth. But we will resist all atrocities carryout by Kiir government, Ugandan government, SPLM-N, and JEM, Rwanda, and Kenya against Nuer.
