This information is supplied by local sources and confirmed by Kalonda Amisi, administrator of the territory of Beni. He said it was the Ugandan rebel ADF-Nalu active in this area that attacked the positions of the Congolese soldiers who returned fire and chased the attackers.

The commander of the first sector of the Armed Forces of DRC (FARDC) based in Beni and Rwenzori in charge of operations for the disarmament of the Ugandan rebels, Colonel Eric Rurihombere, also confirmed the facts.

He speaks of an exchange of fire between rebels and FARDC ADF-Nalu and ensures that the situation is under control of the Congolese army. Friday, March 30, the military officer had called the people of Beni to “remain calm”, ensuring that the situation was under control of the FARDC in the area.

The statement came after Colonel Rurihombere demanded the civil society and FARDC, Monusco peacekeepers to ensure the protection of civilians during the hunt for rebels. When he received the Governor of North Kivu province, Tuesday, March 27, interim Prime Minister Louis Koyagialo had claimed to be concerned about the activism of Ugandan rebels of ADF / Nalu and Rwandan FDLR on Congolese soil. He promised to take head on this problem.
