A neighbour of the victim by the name of Siddiq Hamid told Sudan Tribune that three masked armed men stormed into the house of Abdel-Azim Mekki early morning Monday and shot him in the chest while he was sleeping, saying he died before being taken to hospital.

He pointed the perpetrators fled the area following the incident, saying the security services took the necessary measures to reveal their identity.

Hamid added that neighbours of the victims were terrified by the killing incident and expressed fear that the lawlessness situation in Nyala could return again.

Also, unidentified group has stolen the vehicle of the director of the Radio and Television Commission which was parked in front of the premises of the Ministry of Information and Culture in down town Nyala.

Earlier this month, gunmen killed the ex-commissioner of Al-Radoum locality Abdel Sadig al-Sharif in his home in Ghibaish area, 15km south of Buram locality in South Darfur.

South Darfur has witnessed over the last two years a wave of kidnapping, murder and looting which prompted state authorities to declare an indefinite emergency situation and impose a daily curfew.

The state also banned riding of motorcycles by more than one person, holding weapons while wearing civilian clothes, vehicles driving around without license plates, and wearing a Kadamool (a turban which covers the face).
