Police in Elegu trading centre on Monday this week rescued two South Sudanese Nationals from being lynched by enraged motorcycle riders.
The two South Sudanese Nationals whose names could not be assessed by press time were lynched in what some of the motorcyclist called revenge to their counterparts in South Sudan.
They claimed that they are always being brutalized by the South Sudanese nationals when they travel to South Sudan.
“When we are in their country, they beat, rob and kill us. But when they are here, we treat them well and they do not consider that. We must revenge on them”, one enraged boda-boda man said
The South Sudan Government recently started carrying a crack down on numberless motorcycles which made many of the Ugandans flee to Elegu boarder between Uganda and South Sudan.
Steven Odongkara, the police spokesperson in charge of the greater North road confirmed the report.
Odongkara explained that, “We swung in action and rescued the situation and there is no chaos now”.
Odongkara said that there is need for both Ugandans and the South Sudanese Nationals to know the benefit of cooperating.
