JUBA – At least two (2) police officers have been killed after unidentified gunmen attack a police station in the country’s Western Equatoria state, according to a Western Equatoria state official.
Eye Radio was the first to report the incident.
Zilfa Dawa, the Mundri West County Commissioner, said two separate attacks were carried out on Wednesday one on the police station in Lui, in which the two police officers were killed, and the other was on a passenger vehicle.
“Between 7:30PM and 8PM, unknown gunmen attacked the police station in Lui. They killed two people and injured three others,” Zilfa Dawa said according to the Juba-based radio station.
He said the passenger vehicle with registration number SSD 231AQ fell into an ambush between Tapari and Jambo along the Juba-Mundri road on Wednesday afternoon.
Two people died and three others were wounded.
Dawa added that vehicles have stopped moving along the Juba-Mundri road due to fear of insecurity.
There have been reports of road ambushes along major highways in recent months, with travelers either killed or kidnapped.
