More than 26 people were killed while many others were wounded when a group of gunmen attacked two villages in northwestern Central African Republic.
United Nations Multi-Dimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission Headquarters to the Central African Republic (MINUSCA), Mankeur Ndiaye said on Wednesday that massacres took place in the villages of Koundjili and Djoumjoum.
He added that MINUSCA ‘condemned’ the murder and vowed to arrest and bring his master to justice.
Such incidents were the worst since the kingdom and 14 militias signed an agreement in February aimed at restoring security in one of the most disastrous states in Africa.
A source of the United Nations (UN) said the killing was carried out by a group called the 3R which arranged a meeting with the villagers before shooting them off.
“A total of 12 people were killed in Koundjili and 14 in Djoumjoum,” sources said.
