An unidentified man in Sudan People's Liberation Army (SPLA) uniform was on Tuesday evening lynched in Moyo district. 

Residents of Chunyu Wano in Purojo village, located about a kilometre from the South Sudan border accused him of stealing a blanket from one of them. They attacked and disarmed him of a sub machine gun that had no ammunition before killing him instantly at about 6pm. The stolen blanket was later recovered from him.

“Thereafter efforts shall be made to reach out to his formation for further management. We appeal to the wanainchi not to take the law into their hands but to always inform the security for intervention than mob justice,” he advised.
