The killing sparked outrage both in the capital Juba and Bor, the capital of Jonglei state with angry protesters setting alight the house of Jonglei state secretary-general.

In a statement on Thursday, Michael Makuei who is also the government spokesman condemned the violence which he said is alarming against the people of Bor in particular.

“Personally I condemns this alarming violence against the people of Bor,” Makuei said.

“I call on the government, specially the law enforcement agencies to bring to book the friends of Lual Marine or whatever is his name, to justice before others can take law into their own hands,” Michael Makuei further said.
