Apaa Residents Abandon Homes Following Renewed Attacks

Several Of Such Meetings Took Place in Apaa

The security situation in the disputed Apaa areas remains volatile following fresh outbreak of ethnic violence between the Acholi and Madi ethnic groups that left three people dead.

The three people were killed in Juka ‘B’ village within the disputed areas during tribal clashes involving members of the two ethnic groups.

The incident happened last Wednesday following renewed violence in the area. As a result, at least 200 families, majority Acholi ethnic group have since fled their home.

Santo Okot, a Human Rights Defender in Apaa Township, described the security situation in the disputed area as volatile.

Peter Data Taban, the Adjumani Resident District Commissioner (RDC) who doubles as the chairperson District Security Committee called for calm among the fear-stricken community. He said that all is being done to ensure that normalcy return to the area.

The relationship among the Madi and Acholi occupying the contested Apaa township has been sour over the years following a move by the government to demarcate the land formerly believed to be part of Amuru district in October 2017.
