“The senseless violence not only endangers the lives of our citizens but also disrupts the flow of essential services to our people,” Boyoi said. “We condemn this criminal act in the strongest terms possible, and we are deeply saddened by the killing of the one security personnel and the harm caused against the innocent individuals.”

The attack occurred on May 23rd in the Kethelen Manyabol Gumuruk County, where armed group targeted vehicles carrying network equipment.

Boyoi vowed that his administration would work to restore security and recover all the looted assets belonging to the affected company.

“Our administration is resolute in its commitment to the safety and security of all travellers,” Boyoi stated.

“We assure the mobile operators that their looted assets and items will be recovered.”

Boyoi also acknowledged the efforts of the National Communication Authority (NCA) and the affected company, USAF, for their commitment to ensuring that the Pibor community remains connected, stating that their efforts are “greatly appreciated.”

“While promising to hold these criminals accountable and bring them to justice, we will continue to work with the national government to implement robust security measures to protect all travelers and businesses operating in the greater Pibor area,” Boyoi concluded.

The attack has sparked widespread concern among local communities and businesses, who have long called for the government to address the deteriorating security situation in the region.
