Markets in Nyala witnessed a remarkable rise in prices. For instance, the price of a sack of millet has reached 210 pounds, a kilo of meat 16 pounds, and coconut water two pounds. Meanwhile, a source in Nyala told Radio Dabanga that long lines of automobiles formed in front of stations to get fuel (pictured above). The mounting fuel prices had prompted a number of city residents to go about on foot. The crisis escalated after the security forces imposed new regulations for handling and dispensing of fuel at the petrol stations. Drivers questioned the fairness of this measure to deal with the crisis, causing long lines to form.
