Revenge attack leaves two people injured in Akoc

Two people have sustained injuries in Akoc town in what is described by residents as revenge attack.

One of the victims who is a police officer was stabbed in the stomach by a 21-year-old young man.

The attack prompted the relatives of the victim to storm the house of the suspect and beat him unconscious.

Eyewitnesses say the attack was sparked by last year’s incident in which the officer who is now a victim, allegedly ordered police personnel to shoot the young man.

One of the eyewitnesses Mayai Longar says the victims have now been referred to different hospitals in Agok and Aweil.
