He added that the commissioner of Aweil South County, Thel Thel, and the Police Chief Inspector, Brig. Mabior Deng, are on the site investigating the reason for the deaths.
Similar incidents of individuals being murdered by wolves are becoming more regular in Northern Bahr el Ghazal.
A lady whose name is unknown was discovered dead in the Madhol Payam forest early this year, and investigations are underway to determine who took her life.
Locals accuse the troops who are in possession of weapons even when they are not on duty for the widespread murders.
They urge to the military leaders in charge of monitoring them to tame their men, or else they would suffer from a dread of the unknown.
