Security forces storm Bakosoro compound in Maridi

March 18, 2010 (MARIDI, WES) — Security forces stormed on Thursday morning the compound where are the Western Equatoria independent candidate, Joseph Bakosoro, and his campaign team in Maridi.

Bakosoro’s bodyguards, who are provided by the commissioner of police in Yambio, were disarmed and arrested by the soldiers.

Bakosoro’s campaign manager, Mr. Angelo Bakote, in a statement to Sudan Tribune reassured no body has been harmed including Joseph Bakosoro.

“Bakosoro is fine,” he said, adding “We would like to urge the supporters of Bakosoro that he is safe and they should be calm. We are all doing fine. We are in contact with NEC.”

Asked about why the bodyguards were arrested, he said ignoring the motive and the instigator.

“We do not know what and who is behind the move,” he said.
