This rumour is confirmed true and is of high priority – here's why:
An armed robber ambushed a boda boda rider just next to the Lutaya Market by shooting a number of bullets towards the boda boda rider, which triggered the South Sudanese government forces stationed at Lutaya and Kegulu to respond by firing artillery in several directions. This caused fear and panic to residents at Lutaya, Erap, Hai Dam, and the Kondeko Boma. However, at the time of verifying this rumour the situation had returned to normal.
