Developing Story -Around 7:15 PM random gunshot was heard in Sherikat residential area Juba.
The deceased was identified as Maj. Gen. Bior Ajoh Bior who served as Deputy Director for Administration at the South Sudan National Police Services.
While it is not clear whether the assailant is a member of SSPDF or a member of South Sudan National Security Service, the deceased was from the Dinka-Bor [Alian, Jalle] of Jonglei State leaving doubts whether this incident has connections with the shooting that happened here on June 2, 2020.
“From my observation, the soldier dressed in a civilian attire is sober as he wasn’t shooting randomly, he could have shot at us but instead tried to intercept an approaching taxi and shouted at us to leave the scene. At first I didn’t know he was the one until I saw him holding his gun.” The eyewitness said.
The reason for the killing is yet to be ascertained.
