Bunia, May 22nd, 2021 (CPA) .- CDF 50,000,000 and nearly USD 10,000 carried away in a robbery orchestrated by armed robbers in the Lembabo district in the town of Bunia, the CPA learned on Friday from an administrative source.

According to the source, these thugs broke into a pharmacy where there is also a space for sending and transferring money by threatening those who were there with a gun. The time for them to grab the bag that contained the money to go out and vanish into the wild. No human damage is to be deplored at the end of this burglary, informed the source, before affirming that these armed bandits did not use their weapon adding that a suspect is under arrest. The city of Bunia has seen an upsurge in cases of armed robbery in recent days.

What for the military governor, Lt General Johnny Luboya N’kashama, promised a fierce fight against this urban banditry during the recent meeting of the provincial security committee. This resurgence of urban banditry of sad memory in the city of Bunia would aim according to several observers to sabotage the efforts of the imposition of state authority by the military administration, the results of which are palpable on the ground.
