Hillary Roberto narrated that NSS officers were patrolling the highway when their vehicles fell into an ambush in Jebellein.

He said the incident initially caused panic among the people in the area; some people fled in to the bush for fear of their lives but now the situation is normal and the cars are moving as usual.

Mr Roberto asserted that there are a lot of criminal groups along Juba-Nimule road, the attackers are unknown.

In related case on Tuesday, Nyamilepedia spoke to Mary Keji, one of the Loa residents in Pageri County, Imatong state about a bus that was shot at in the area, and admittedly said the incident indeed happened.

“On Tuesday, gunmen shot at a passenger bus at Loa, wounding the driver. Officials say the identity of the attackers was not established,” Keji said.

Firing along the roads or at check points is not new, earlier in July, the SPLM-IO forces clashed with the government soldiers that searched the vehicles in Gudele, a western suburb of Juba town.

That clash was followed by J1 incident the following day after which Juba was engulfed by flames that forced the First Vice President, Dr. Riek Machar out of the capital.

For the last two months fighting has continued outside the capital, however, the government has restricted media coverage and humanitarian assistances in those areas.

    Amongst the fallen, two are believe to be Terrorist Jaang Tribal Security, whom are also Senior Major Generals. I advise anyone with a relative with the ranks of major general stationed or deployed to that area to check if their terrorist relative is dead while terrorizing civilians in the region of Equatoria. The coward Jaang gov will not announce their death because of fear of panic as they are losing morale in the front lines. Many of the Jaang’s Terrorist Extremists are refusing orders for deployment to carry out tribal crimes and are abandoning their posts, removing their military uniforms and blending into civilian crowds. Juba will be on fire pretty soon from every directions. Jaang terrorists and rapists can run but can’t hide. Not even in Uganda where Kiir’s residential complex with over 30 apartments buildings is being raided for suspicious massive amount of money laundering.
