Security authorities in Central Darfur are reportedly preventing displaced people from returning to their villages, after forcibly moving them from Gildu to Golo.

Activists reported to Radio Dabanga that since May 25, the authorities in Central Darfur have moved large numbers of civilians who fled from Gildu because of the air strikes on their villages between Golo and Deribat in Central Darfur.

The activists reported that the authorities prevented the residents from returning to their villages under the pretext that there is a decision issued against the return to those villages, and that they are in the process of distributing tents for them to remain in Golo.

They confirmed that the forcible movement of the people who have been displaced from Golo to return to Gildu is still ongoing. The evacuees of Gildu are being forced to stay. They are not being allowed access to their villages from which they have been forced to flee.
