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.”

June 11, 2020 (Thessherald)–A Key commander leading an infamous armed group known as Gelweng has been killed and several others wounded during intense fighting between his forces and the SSPDF troops in South Sudan’s Lakes State.

According to a reliable source, the militia commander, Monydiar Maker was accused of aiding the newly formed rebel movement called the ‘7 October Movement’ headed by former businessman and philanthropist Kerbino Wol.

“Monydiar Maker and 10 others have been killed, including 7 women – at least 3 children were wounded during the fighting between SSPDF forces and Monydiar Group in Amokping Payam Rumbek East County Lakes State,” said the source who declined to be named.

“Monydiar was killed in serious confrontations as SSPDF stormed his hideout in one of the cattle camp,” the source added.

Kerbino Wol Agook, a former businessman, left the capital Juba for the bush to launch an armed rebellion against the Kiir administration.

On June 7, an SPLA-IO commander identified as Gabriel Bol Anuer, gave Kerbino Wol a 24-hour ultimatum to leave Lakes State immediately or risks being seized in the area.

“Karbino Wol should leave Lakes States territory within 24hrs. Failure to do so will provoked my sentiment. I have instructed anyone who claimed to be member of the SPLA-IO to report themselves to IO cantonment sites with immediate effect, or report to SSPDF if you are from SSPDF so that we hunt down any criminal roaming in Lakes States territory. Karbino is warned for mobilizing or starting his rebellion in Lakes States,” said Gabriel Bol in a Facebook post.
