Bentiu – A unit of United Nation Police force (UNPOL) clashed with armed robbers inside Bentiu PoC, leaving one of the robbers dead and another one injured.
The clash comes following a repeated reports of arms and ammunition presence in the PoC leaving the IDPs population in constant fear of their lives and their properties.
“These people have been in the camp for a long time, they are not only these two, they are many of them and they operates even from outside. They have their sources from outside where they get their weapons and come in here to rob people”
“The UN [Police] came and wanted to arrest them but they fired at the UN [Police] and then they were shot. One is now dead and another one is alive, they took him yesterday and I think he is in the hospital” explained the IDP who asked us not to name him for fear of the very same armedrobbers who he believes will eventually come back.
Bentiu PoC is a home to thousand of IDPs predominantly from the Nuer Community and have been in the camp since the onset of the conflict in 2013.
