The SPLA Chief of General Staff, Paul Malong, following the order, also ordered the army to return to their barracks with immediate effect.

The order read on SSBC by the SPLA spokesperson, Brigadier Lul Ruai, says any soldier found on the street or looting civilian property will be arrested.

The order further warns that any soldier or officer that will resist arrest will be “shot at”.

It’s been hours now since the forces last used heavy machine guns. However, there’s sporadic shooting at Korok and the Jebel areas.
