Official says unknown gunmen have killed two men and injured two others in Ajakuac in Twic County of Warrap state.
Ajakuac’s executive director says the assailants opened gunfire at local youths who were patrolling on Wednesday night.
“There were rumors, so we sent a team to rescue people there, but they fell into an ambush. Two people were killed, and two others were injured between Ajakuach and Bombil,” Maker Marik.
The team that fell into an ambush was responding to rumors of attack, according to the official. Maker said the assailants ran after the incident.
This brings the number of people killed by unknown gunmen in Ajakuac to 5 since the year began. In January, a trader was killed in Akotong.
On Saturday last week, two fishermen were killed in Awainhom fishing site in the neighboring Aweng payam.
