Three chiefs arrested over robbery in Lakes

Authorities in Lakes State have arrested three chiefs following a robbery incident that took place in Awerial County last week.

One person was injured and several herds of cattle stolen when an armed group ambushed commercial trucks ferrying the animals to Juba.

Barnaba Mayor, the Secretary-General of the now-defunct Eastern Lakes State, told Radio Tamazuj on Monday that the chiefs were arrested to bring those involved in the robbery.

“We arrested those chiefs for investigations because the incident occurred near a cattle camp in the area of Dor.  The investigations are ongoing, and we hope those involved in the attack will be identified and arraigned in court,” he explained.
