The Central Equatoria State (CES) governor, Emmanuel Adil Anthony, has ordered the state law enforcement agencies to investigate an incident where unknown persons broke into the mayor’s office.

Adil directed the minister of local government and law enforcement, Moro Isaac, to spearhead the investigation with immediate effect.

However, it is not clear what items had been looted from the mayor’s office. The incident happened after the former mayor, Kalisto Lado, was sacked.

Speaking during the swearing-in ceremony of the new mayor, Michael Alla-jabu Ladu, Adil said the matter should be investigated and the suspects brought to book.

“The office of the former mayor has been broken into and all those involved must be brought to account. I want a report. The investigation must be carried out as soon as possible, ” he said.

He directed the security organs, especially the police, to work closely on the investigation so that those who broke into the office were apprehended.

Adil said gunshots and other criminal-related activities have been reduced in Juba following the collective responsibilities by the organized force and Juba City Council.
