October 21, 2018 (JUBA) - South Sudan main armed opposition group, SPLM-IO, denied accusations by the National Salvation Front of Thomas Cirilo (NAS-TC) that they plan to attack three positions in Yei River State saying it aims to create a negative atmosphere to disturb peace enforcement.

Also, it dismissed claims by the FDP-SSAF that the SPLA-IO forces took their positions outside Nasir County in the Upper Nile region.

According to a statement released in the first hours of Sunday NAS-TC spokesperson, the holdout group said that the SPLA-IO fighters are heading to its positions in Kajo­Keji, Lainya and Loka of Yei River State.

"This is absolutely baseless and unfounded accusation made as a cover-up for their next systematic aggression against civilians in Yei River State," said Lam Paul Gabriel SPLM-IO Deputy Spokesperson in a statement released on Sunday evening.

Gabriel added that NAS-TC has no presence in Kajo-Keji since October 20017, adding the remaining NAS-TC forces are now based in Mukaya from where they launched a recent attack on civilians in Minyori area where they killed about 17 civilians.

"It should be noted that NAS-TC is against the R-ARCSS that’s why they are always negative to a peaceful environment and want to instigate violence to disrupt the implementation of the R-ARCSS," he stressed.

NAS-TC says they are committed to the cessation of hostilities of 21 December 2017 despite their rejection of the revitalized peace agreement.

SPLM-IO ACCUSED OF ATTACKS IN UPPER NILE

In a separate development, the Federal Democratic Party-South Sudan Armed Forces (FDP-SSAF), led by Gabriel Changson who is also the chairperson of the SSOA accused the SPLA-IO of attacking their position in at Kotkea near Nasir town of Latjoor State in Upper Nile region.

In a statement extended to Sudan Tribune, the SFP-SSAF which is a signatory of the revitalized peace agreement said the assailants took the control of Kotkea and captured two of its commanders Major General Riek Gach Gatluak and Brigadier Ochan Nyuot.

"This unprovoked attack is part of a plan by the SPLM/A-IO to dislodge the Opposition forces from their locations so that they can claim to be the only Opposition force to deal with," said the statement.

The opposition group condemned the attack pointing they had informed the SPLM-IO leadership of the preparations on the ground for the attack urging to stop it. Also, the called on the IGAD, Troika and the international community to press for the immediate release of the captured commanders and the withdrawal of the SPLA-IO forces from the area.

"The SPLA-IO calls upon the CTSAMM and UNMISS to immediately investigate this propaganda and bring those responsible to books," said the FDP-SSAF.

However, SPLM-IO Deputy Spokesperson brushed aside the accusations saying the SSOA has no troops in the area.

"SSOA never had forces in Sobat area that we know of. The SPLA IO is only aware of the regime’s forces in Weiyardiw in Nasir. SSOA should stop negative propaganda against a peace partner and its leadership," said Gabriel.

    Rebels in general are messing up South Sudan and NAS has no forces at all, but a thief called Thomas Cirillo who is hiding outside South Sudan.

            The country is 100% under controlled. Wicked rebels are cutting down themselves. It’s not our problem, but theirs. We are sitting and waiting. A thief called Cirillo has no forces and he is hiding outside our country, perfect.

              I’m seeing how jienges are terrified by Gen Cirillo and NAS. Well, the best NAS should do is bring the war into Juba. That way, we shall see wherelse your will run. Fight for your survival like trapped rats. I like that

        Rhino,
        Help me understand, who is this IO Dep. Military spokesman Lam Gabriel? A pure Equatorian, or some "bagi bul" of nyagat or jienge now spewing shit? All Equatorian IOs: Henry Odwar, Oyet, Matata etc. are silent after federalism, return to 10 states, reducing the bloated TGoNU have all been rejected by Kiirminal. Just decamp and back Equatorian agenda.

      A junior soldier attached to then office of Gen Cirillo hsf gone ahead to forge signature of Gen Cirillo and dared to do things as if he were in charge. Gen Cirillo threw him in for insubordination and prompt Gen Malong wrnt ahead to release him. Monies were lost. Jienges are naturally born thieves. Period. Say want you want.

      What you and the rest jienges should be doing is go ahead with your peace. Once you successful implement and get SS out of this shit that you made, we the rest will join. Dont expect the rest to come and scoop off your messed up shit. No.

        Country is under controlled 100%. We don’t give damn care to NAS and Cirillio. To us, Cirillio is a thief. Let him enjoy his life outside South Sudan, no problem there. Majority of people in Equatoria are for peace. Those handful wicked individuals who thank social media will fight for them are disgrace, cowards, stupid and monkeys too.

          I understand your frustration and bogus claim of controlling the SS 100%. Most nyors have been liquidated, made cripples and rest beggars in Juba. With Malong on the run, most nyors have turned into wayward thugs and bandits. Who cares? Just bring more of them and we mow them down just like bush niggas.

            You don’t know how to fight. The reason you ran way in 2013 was to avoid war. Leave war to people who have courage and those who are willing to give away the best part of their life. Cirillo, you and the likes are nothing but cowards.

        Questions,why are there still innocent Nuers and others caged in POC sites across and outside the country since you nyagats and jienges have already signed your so called peace?Are all citizens not supposed to be out of prisons enjoying peace and moving freely without fear especially in Juba or traveling back to Upper Nile,Bahr El Ghazal or other places of their origin?Is it not.....

          ...evidently clear enough that civilians at the protection sites have shown their mistrust towards your greedy murderous savage politicians?Is this not a firm demonstration that these internally displaced have long chosen side and rightfully so that they disgust your bogus peace?So,what peace is there for them that you even talk of/about to be spoiled?

        Be reasonable, just go ahead and implement your peace. Once people see there’s progress, they will come. I completely understand your frustration cuz no Equatorians are interested in this jienge-nyagat shit. Your people can only fight, eat,sleep, sit and f**k around. Losers
