Dozens of residents demonstrated in front of Golo military garrison in Central Darfur on Friday after one person was killed, and four others were wounded in an attack by unknown gunmen in Jebel Marra on Thursday night.

One of the wounded told Radio Dabanga that gunmen opened fire in the districts of El Sadaga, El Sad El aali and El Sawra on Thursday night, instantly killing Derej Ahmed and wounding secondary school teacher Adam Abakar, University of Sudan student Mubarak Yagoub, and a fourth person who has not been identified.

The demonstrators demanded the arrest of the perpetrators and that they will be brought to justice. The witness did not know the gunmen’s motives for the attack.
