Four motorcycle riders were brutalised and their bikes burnt on Saturday Oct. 30, by rebels of the Unite pour la Paix en Centrafrique (UPC) in the locality of Ngakobo, Dar-es-Salam village, Central African Republic.
According to the President of the civil society of the Ngougbia council situated 57 km to the south of Bambari in the prefecture of Ouaka, four motorcycle riders were captured by the UPC rebels.
“It was this Saturday, a little after midday, that the UPC elements attacked the village of Dar-es-Salam. We have recorded four motorbikes burnt and their owners seriously brutalised,” a local source said.
“One person was taken into the bushes by the rebels before eventually being released several hours later.”
The source pleaded with the military authorities to carry out raids in areas known to be the hideouts of UPC rebels in the hope of bringing back peace in the region.
