The authority says the two people currently detained were among the 13 others taken by SSPDF with 11 reportedly released.

“Eleven people were released last week, but two people are still in the custody of SSPDF and we don’t know their fate. The other person is a local trader. So we are calling on the government to release the two,” said Joel Rufas Taban, an Acting Bishop of the Episcopal Church of Lanya County.

He said Lanya has turned into a battlefield of SSPDF and NAS forces with both victimizing civilians accusing them of backing their foes. Joel said it was time leaders practice what they preach.

“We sing one song, the song of peace that people need peace now to settle in their areas, not only in Lanya but in the whole of South Sudan because that will be a benefit to ordinary citizens,” he said.

“But what leaders say is contrary to what is on the ground. When will these killings end? Many returnees are forced to go back to refugee camps where they came from because the situation there is so bad,” Joel said.

The Bishop called on both SSPDF and NAS to cease hostilities and allow people returning from camps to rebuild their livelihood.

In May, the SSPDF was accused of arresting and killing 4 worshipers, including a priest in Lanya during a Sunday service.

Maj. Gen. Lul Ruai Koang, SSPDF Spokesperson told the media the SSPDF rank would launch investigations into the incidence.

Matthew Laku, acting paramount chief of Lanya County, said despite relative calm within Lanya town, insecurity remained rife in remote areas.

Those uniforms are not South Sudanese ‘army uniforms’. If you see those unusual uniforms, report them to South Sudanese authorities and they they will be hunted down like antelopes and be done away with.

As for us here in Jonglei and Upper Nile, any evil white Americans, white English people, their cloned so-called arabs of North Sudan, their Abeshas (so-called ethiopians) prostitutes, some of their Bantuses, their UN, their sleazy NGOs, evil juus (so-called israelis) attack dogs, their UNMISS of : Indians, Pakistanis, Bangladeshis, Nepalese, Sri Lankan, their gulf Arab states financiers are unwelcome. Should any South Sudanese ever ever again try to countries or their relatives into our country and over our people ever ever again, and that South Sudanese would would be as good as dead.

There are some of our fools who love to attach to other people, however you tell them, them they are going to bomb out of map, they don’t listen. But these days. WW3 is going to start here. But our enemies are going to be bombed OUT OF MAP ONCE AND FOR ALL Reasons, pure HATRED and RACISM.
