Juba - A respected South Sudan journalist, Isaac Vuni was reportedly found dead alongside a road, three months after he was abducted from his home by unknown gunmen.
According to BBC live, Vuni's wife, Lucy Jua, confirmed that her husband had been found dead in what she believed to be a politically motivated murder.
"On Thursday we were informed that he was killed, but there is no information. Two youth or three found him dead, so they buried him.
"We don’t even know where he was buried. No information up to now," Lucy was quoted as saying.
Tens of thousands of people have been killed and more than 2.5 million driven from their homes since a new conflict gripped South Sudan in late 2013 following its split from Sudan under a landmark peace deal.
Many journalists paid tribute to Vuni who worked for many years as a journalist and was well respected by his colleagues.
