Lieutenant General Malual Ayom made this disclosure while speaking to Radio Tamazuj.
“My security guard, Garang Deng was killed by unknown assailants at his duty post when they opened fire outside the house. They (assailants) also took phones from his nephew.
“The incident occurred when the security guard and my nephew Ayom Lueth were returning home from my late brother’s house where they normally have dinner,” he said.
He further said, “When the two people were coming home, two armed men in plain clothes emerged from the gate and asked my nephew who was ahead to kneel down, so after they asked my nephew to surrender his wallet and phones, they shot Garang when he appeared.
