Adil directs Kaji-Keji Commissioner to restore calm

Central Equatoria State Governor, Emmanuel Adil Anthony, has re-directed the Commissioner of Kajo-Keji County, Phanuel Dumo Jame, to restore total calm in his county with immediate effect.

The state governor seems disturbed following the recent rise in insecurity in Kajo-Keji County.

He demanded calm so as to fast-track the ever-sustained government’s efforts on home return and engage holdout groups in the area to denounce violence.

Adil, who met with Commissioner Dumo in the State Government General Secretariat on Thursday, stressed the need to rescue the suffering of innocent civilians.

On the killing of a veteran police officer in Kajo-Keji (2nd Lt. James Tomba), the governor condemned the current phenomenon and assured that his administration and security apparatus will take drastic measures to bring the perpetrators into account through the full force of the law.

Meanwhile, Commissioner Dumo reassured the leadership of Central Equatoria State (CES) of his commitment to return calm with the people’s support.

He, however, described the general security situation in Kajo Keji County as relatively calm, with the exception of a few pockets of insecurity.

Mr. Dumo said the past incidences reported over the past few weeks were triggered by some alleged negative elements in the area.

On Wednesday, the veteran police officer, 2nd Lt. James Tomba, 58 years old, was attacked in his residence and shot dead by unidentified assailants.

The daughter of the late, narrated that her father had just returned from a funeral place when the killers ambushed them and started shooting.

Another tragic ambush also happened two weeks ago, in which two people—a civilian and a soldier—lost their lives and two others sustained injuries.
