Geoffrey Oceng Osborn, the Amuru Deputy Resident District Commissioner also Chairperson of the District Security Committee, says the South Sudanese forced their way into the country to facilitate transportation of illegal drugs.
Amuru District Health Officer, Dr Patrick Odong Olwedo revealed that currently, only 13 health workers are deployed at the border screening point. They include four clinical officers who do the screening, four laboratory technicians and support staff.
A team of police backed Amuru COVID-19 Task Force and health workers searched for the driver in Elegu Town Council only to realise that his truck was being driven by another person. The Aswa River Region Police Spokesperson, Patrick Jimmy Okema, says the team persisted and searched for the driver until 1:00pm when he was found at BLD parking yard in Elegu.
