According to the news in almost all the media outlets, seen by NCMP, a South Sudan Catholic Church parish priest has been murdered after being arrested during a Sunday mass service in Central Equatoria state on Sunday, according to a top Church cleric.
Archbishop of Central Equatoria state Internal Province Paul Yugusuk said Pastor Comas Kwaje Matayo was picked up on Sunday by members of the army in Gumbri and then taken to a place where he and other Church members were killed.
“I regret to inform the leadership and the Christians of Central Equatoria Internal Province and the Diocese of Lainya that Reverend Comas Kwaje Matayo was arrested on Sunday during a Sunday service together with four other church members,” Father Paul said.
They were taken to some location and later killed in cold blood, the church leader explained.
The other deceased are 10-year-old Simon Taban, an altar servant; Moses Wani, the area chief; and Loki Ebidayo, an elder at the Gumbri ECSS church.
Archbishop Yugusuk went on to call on the army leadership to investigate the killing and find the perpetrators to hold them to account.
The motive behind the killing of the worshipers is not yet known. And the military authorities are yet to comment on the matter.
