TORIT, 08 January 2017 [Gurtong] –
Torit Mayor, Eddy William Ponsiano announced last Thursday that the government is pursuing the attackers who have since looted and killed innocent civilians on the highways particularly on the Torit-Juba highway.

The Torit town authorities have revealed that both public and private travels have now been suspended until further notice.

The Mayor disclosed that the decision was reached following a joint security meeting held in Torit last week.

He clarified that the suspension will allow the State security agents carry out security operations.
The road users; passengers and drivers, have been advised to remain patient as the government was working to resolve the matter.

Last Wednesday, an attack on the Torit-Juba road near Lolere village a few kilometres from Torit town, left 2 people got killed and 6 others wounded including the driver.

The attacked bus carrying passengers, was heading to Juba from Torit, before it fell into an ambush which led to the deadly attack.
