Gov’t urged to deploy forces in hotspots areas

By Emelda Siama John

The commissioner of Fangak County, Biel Boutros Biel, warned of a possible intrusion into Pigi and Fangak counties of Jonglei state by Agwelek Forces from the neighboring Upper Nile state.

Probably with an aim of perpetuating revenge following the unfortunate October 2022 rampage by Jonglei State army inside the territories of Upper Nile State.

However, this intends to appeal to the government to heed to this alarm by timely considering necessary security menace in the area deemed vulnerable to the alleged menace such as heightening presence of the Army and other law enforcement agencies.

The Civil Society Network said that it’s equally of paramount importance for the two governments of Jonglei and Upper Nile state to engage the leaderships of Agwelek Forces in Nonviolent approaches to end conflict and offer a chance for the communities of both states to forge a mutual and more peaceful coexistence.

“We would like to remind the authorities of the significance of deploying the Necessary Unified Forces (NUF) where necessary as a part of Government constitutional obligation to protect lives and safeguard properties of her civilians.”

“This onus is even made more important as the unity government seeks to implement the peace accord more efficiently and effectively, with high anticipation,” they added.
