The Governor of Eastern Equatoria Louis Lobong Lojore has survived a deadly ambush laid by heavily armed men on Monday evening, a state official has reported.

Governor Lobong was in Camp-15 to calm down the high tension following an attack on Sunday at a trading center.

Sunday’s attack at Camp-15 left 17 people dead and four others nursing gun wounds at Chukudum’s Hospital, Eastern Equatoria State. One bodyguard to the Governor died in the ambush, and three others sustained life-threatening injuries.

A wife to one SSPDF soldier was also killed when the angry armed youth followed the Governor and attacked the military barracks in Camp-15, bringing the incident’s death toll to two.

According to a source in the state capital, Kapoeta, the armed men laid an ambush minutes after the Governor left camp 15.

Sunday’s attack on Camp-15 was believed to be a revenge attack on what had occurred at the SPLM-IO Cantonment sites at Lowuareng.

After a two-hour-long gun-battle with the armed youth, the Governor’s Protection Unit and the SSPDF soldiers at Camp-15 barracks managed to push back the attackers.

The Governor and his peace delegates are back at the SSPDF barracks but in defensive positions to respond to any impending attack.

The SSPDF Commander for the Seventh Infantry Division Maj. Gen. Robert Ewot Okimo, who is accompanying the Governor, said they have called for reinforcement from Juba to help rescue the Governor and evacuate him from the state.
