A civilian was shot dead by a member of the local militia in Saraf Omra, North Darfur on Tuesday.A relative of the deceased, Abdul Aziz Abkar Abdullah, told Radio Dabanga that the incident had happened when Abdul Aziz was headed back to his village after shopping in the city with other villagers.
As they wanted to cross the city’s checkpoint, located on the outskirts, the militia guarding it asked the group to pay two pounds per person to be granted access out of Saraf Omra.
Abdul Aziz refused and was shot twice; one bullet hit his head, the other one his chest, which led to his immediate death.
Following the the death, the relative filed a report at the police station. The militia member who committed the crime was then taken to jail for his actions, the relative told Radio Dabanga.
