Meanwhile, the commissioner of Torit County Jacob Atari Albano said there are hunting for the perpetrators for taking the laws into their hands.

Atari condemned the act as it violates human rights and called on the perpetrators to report them to the relevant authorities.

“They beat that man all of them and this one has already gone beyond. I am not happy with the incident and telling them not to run because if they keep running they will still come back here,” he said.

“For sure I talked with the husband of the wife and he said he was the one who killed. The man said he hit him with a strong metal,” Atari said.
