The incident, which occurred Thursday, violates terms of a ceasefire agreement signed in the capital, Juba last month.

The commissioner of Bor West county, Simon Thon Ayuen, said a number of goats were also confiscated during the same attack.

“Two people were injured and one killed in an attack in which suspected Murle ethnic tribesmen abducted a five-year old boy”, he said.

He said the attackers attacked a home at Char-akau in Bor West, injuring a four-year old girl as well as killing the deceased relative.

The incident a clear indication of the series of violation to the ceasefire agreement that was signed in Juba under the chairmanship of First Vice President, Taban Deng Gai.

    South Sudan has already turned into a terror zone. Survival remains only for combats! This calls for every citizen to use available resources to a self-defense.Defend yourselves as individuals, families, groups or communities. Like you pend for your daily bread, not a government doing it. Nothing more than that!

      The whole thing rolls back to the presidency. He has failed to rule and lead the people of South Sudan. Genuinely he should resign and live South Sudan live a peaceful life.
