Two Killed, 36 Houses Razed In CODECO Attack On Mahagi, DR Congo

This happened during an attack by combatants of the CODECO on Pakenge Ndena village in Ituri province, Democratic Republic of Congo.

Two persons were reported dead on Monday night, Oct. 18 in an attack by combatants of the Cooperative for the Development of Congo (CODECO), on Pakenge Ndena village in Ituri province, Democratic Republic of Congo.

The assailants also burnt down at least 36 houses, according to local sources in the area.

This attack led to the massive displacement of the population from Pakenge Ndena.

The attack followed another one carried out some weeks ago on installations of the National Institute for Studies and Agricultural Research popularly known by the French acronym INERA, in Njoka, Mahagi territory.

The attack which was attributed to CODECO militias resulted in the deaths of five persons including two INERA scientists.
