On Thursday, an armed group identifying itself as People Defenders’ Front (PDF) attacked the house of the SPLA-IO commander of division 9B in Yambio and clashed with his bodyguards, leaving one of the bodyguards wounded.

An attack by the same armed group on boda-boda riders also resulting in the wounding of one of the riders.

In a statement to Sudans Post, the Community Empowerment for Progress Organization (CEPO) condemned the developing situation and urged the political leaders in the restive state to resolve their political grievances through peaceful mean.
