A farmer was shot dead near Garsila in Central Darfur on Wednesday when he refused to leave his farm to its ‘liberators’.

A witness told Radio Dabanga that three gunmen found Ibrahim El Sancjek tending his farm north of Garsila and ordered him to leave the farm immediately, “as the area is liberated and belongs to them”. When El Sancjek refused, they shot him dead.

He said the incident coincided with a visit by state Governor Jaafar Abdelhakam to Garsila.
