A relative of the victim, Hadi Adam Ahmed, told Sudan Tribune that the dead, Ahmed Mahdi Khairallah is a teacher, in Kabkabiya. He further said that the attack occurred on Friday evening as they was returning home after a visit to their family in the area.

"Three masked men riding motorcycles intercepted the car and shot the passengers. They wounded his wife who was taken to the hospital, while the teacher died on the spot," Ahmed said.

Kabkabiya is the homeland of armed militias affiliated with the government, particularly those known as ’’Janjaweed’’. The presence of weapons in the area encouraged armed attack, robberies and tribal violence in the area.

Recently, following the sharp deterioration of the security situation in North Darfur state, Governor Abdel-Wahid Youssef declared a state of maximum readiness in the state capital El-Fasher.

Earlier the state government banned riding of unlicensed vehicles and motorcycles besides wearing of Kadamool (a turban which covers the face).

The Sudanese government vowed to disarm civilians but not concrete measures are taken on the ground, as the uncontrolled gags continue to carry out criminal activities.
