April 12, 2016(Nyamilepedia)—-Today, Tuesday at 11: 20, Juba local time, a number of 16 members of the Advance Team of the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement In Opposition (SPLM-IO) to Juba, have been arrested by South Sudan National Security Service (NISS).
The arrest occurred when they were disseminating to the public at Jebel Suburb in Juba, the announcement of the arrival of 1st Lt. Gen. Alfred Ladu Gore, Deputy Chairman of the SPLM-IO to Juba.
SPLM-IO Advance Team in Juba started its campaign for the arrival of Gen. Gore since Friday 7,calling on the public to turn out in welcoming their hero.
Eyewitnesses said, the team was badly beaten up by an angry crowd of NISS personal riding on two Land-cruiser pickups mounted with heavy automatic machine guns.
NISS associates, according to eyewitnesses, suddenly appeared in front of the announcers and decided to block their way in front of passers-by in Jebel Suburb.
The detained SPLM-IO members of Advance Team include those of Information and Artists, Youth League and Protocol National Committees at the Advance Team.
The senior NISS official admitted their responsibility of arrest to Gen. Taban Deng Gai, Chief Negotiator and Head Advance Team to Juba.
SPLM-IO thus condemn in the strongest terms possible the illegal arrest of its members by NISS and called on the government to immediately take action swift against the perpetrators without delay.
Meanwhile, we reiterate our full commitment to the peace agreement we signed with the government and we express our adherence to the implementation of the provisions of the agreement.
Below is the list of names of SPLM-IO detained members:
- Lam John Kwai
- Sirir Gabriel Yai
- William Peter Oyath
- Choul Lual Wij Nyoun
- Koun Choul Gatluak
- Ramkiel Choul Thok
- John Gwij Dak
- Oja Emmanuel Lupai
- Moses Ajang Akuin
- Kuku Viola
- Manyoun Gwek Biliu
- Louny Bil Lout
- Angyth Myka Madit
- Lewis Peter Jumma
Meanwhile, I deplored the missing name of our member, as we are still tirelessly working to update the public on the full name of no 12 in the list.
At the same time, trying to fine the exact name of the SPLM-IO member, we believe is missing, so that the total number of members under detention comes to 16.
The leadership of the SPLA/M in Opposition is calling on the Goverment of South Sudan to Immediately release the detained members with out delays we do not want our members in the jail.
Sudan People Liberation Movement /Army in Opposition has also call on JMEC,IGAD TRIOKA and UN Security Council to intervene in this serious violation.
