The incident happened when one officer, only identified as Atem Ayuon allegedly opened fire at one of his colleagues, identified as Arol Majak, instantly killing him last Saturday.

The two, sources said, had earlier been involved in a bitter disagreement.

“Yes, in the morning on Saturday when the two who quarreled on Friday night were judged and set free, Atem who was not convinced by the judgment just took laws on his hands and killed Majak,” an officer, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said.

He, however, said after killing his colleague, Atem ran away, but was pursued by soldiers who shot him dead, in an attempt to arrest him.

“This was not the first time Atem carried out such killing on soldiers,” stressed the officer, citing two other incidences that involved Atem.

Other officers, however, attributed the incident involving the two officers to the current conflict between the Agok and Apuk clans of Gogrial state.

The two men hailed from Gogrial, one of South Sudan’s newly-created states.
