This is not the first violent, there have been several attacks against civilians this year by the same armed Nuer groups at the Toch site.

Therefore, we the Youth Union of this community have called the Government intervention to ease the situation in term of Security to allow the quick assessment for NGOs.
We also invite NGOs and UN Agencies to provide any necessary support like food, shelter water and NFIs to the Children, elderly of the affected population.
Finally, we call for the Government, R-JMEC, IGAD, CTSAMVM, and UNMISS to investigate the killing of these innocent civilians since we know the Country is at Peace.
