14/10/2023. Tension is high in Leer County as Lt. Gen. Maguek Gai who recently defected to the SPLM-IG is preparing to launch an attack against the SPLA-IO bases in and around the county using the SSPDF.
This intentional violation is aimed at causing another round of unrest and displacement of civilians from not only Leer county but the whole of Unity State.
It should be noted that the defection of Lt. Gen. Maguek Gai to the SPLM-IG exposed how the SSPDF is being controlled by a party rather than the constitution of this country. This in a nutshell is a remedy for destruction.
The SPLA-IO respect the R-ARCSS and will work hard towards its peaceful implementation but any further act of aggression towards any of its bases will never be tolerated.
The SPLA-IO calls upon the CTSAMVM to investigate this intentional violation and hold those responsible to account. Peace .
