The governor of Central Equatoria State, Emmanuel Adil Anthony has directed all hotel owners to beef up check-in security to prevent unauthorized personnel from entering premises with harmful tools.

This order comes as a safety measure following the killing of a woman and a man alleged to be a boyfriend at Bedouin Lounge on Wednesday by the husband of the slain wife identified as Longar Akok.

The incident occurred at 8:30 PM; Mr Akok who is a National Security Service (NSS) officer with the rank of captain recklessly killed his wife and police officer that he suspected to have had an affair with his wife shooting them indiscriminately.

Governor Adil on Thursday then issued an Order directing all hotels to never allow any persons holding harmful kits to enter hotel premise. The Gubernatorial Order was issued in an attempt to deter further cruel inhumane acts from happening in the future.

“As a consequence of these repeated murders in the city, the governor has directed hotel proprietors to beef up their security in their respective premises by not allowing any unauthorized personnel holding harmful tools to enter their premises,” Adil said in statement shared in his Facebook official page.

Mr. Adil condemned in the strongest term possible the killing that took two lives while also extended his heartfelt condolences to the bereaved family.

“Following yesterday’s (Wednesday’s) shooting by some already identified elements that have culminated into instant loss of two people in Bedouin. [I] Governor Anthony condemn in the strongest terms possible the aforementioned killing.” He conveyed his empathy to the incident.

The Governor further directed the management of Juba City Council, security agencies in the state to instantly implement the order, advising public to be vigilant and report any suspicion cases of crimes on those who made killing of people a habit.
