June 19, 2020 (Thessherald)–South Sudan’s National Security Service has reportedly denied the family of a young man identified as Dau Makoi Keer from burying and paying their last respects to their loved one killed alongside Kerbino Wol Agook.

“The National Security Service strictly warns us as family members [ of the deceased] not to come closer to Ayen Mayar in an attempt to take the body for a decent burial in Amongpiny County of Lakes State,” said a family member who spoke to The South Sudan Herald on condition of anonymity, fearing reprisals.

Another source disclosed that the families of Kerbino Wol Agook, Dau Makoi Keer, and Abraham Majak Maliap have attempted to see the bodies of their loved ones, but to no avail.

“We tried to reach the site three times but we were not allowed to do so – this is pathetic, even the Arabs in Khartoum who were our enemies would give us the bodies of our loved ones during the liberation struggle between Southern Sudan and Northern Sudan,” the relative criticized.

According to several eyewitnesses, a group of National Security officers were spotted at the site, guarding the bodies of the three former members of the 7th October Movement.

The three deceased guys had close relationships when they were inmates in the Blue House.

On Wednesday, a social media user identified as Wol Atak revealed that the young man, Simon Dau Makoi had been extra-judicially executed by the security forces in Mvolo.

“Another sad news: Simon Dau Makoi is reportedly executed by the regime forces in Mvolo yesterday night at 7:40OPM. Simon was one of the Senior officers under 70ct Movement led by late Kerbino Wol,” he narrated.

“He surrendered yesterday hoping he would be spared but he was wrong. His life was not spared. Simon was pulled out from a cell by a soldier from special force, directly deployed by J1, named as Riing and shot him dead.”
