He added that it was last month where youth of panijier raided six hundred herds of cattle and this month they come again and did the same thing. Moreover, the hon. Commissioner says the reason why youths of lakes state don't go for revenge killings after four counties of Lakes State, Rumbek East, Rumbek center, Rumbek North, Yirol east were attacked, it doesn't mean they are fearing Unity state youths but it is because they are respecting peace agreement that had been signed by president of the Republic of South Sudan Salva kiir mayardit and Dr-Riek Machar plus other political parties. He calls on unity State Government to intervene and brought those attackers inyo book face laws and justice. He also appealed to youths of panijier county who has been located to SPLM IO parties to respect their own government and follow agreement. Lakes State youths had experienced bad things from youths of unity state since peace agreement has been signed .
