Unknown gunmen kidnapped a lorry driver in Omdurman last week. In West Darfur, an abductee was freed by policemen.

The brother of the abductee told Radio Dabanga that three armed men wearing civilian clothes intercepted Khatir Adam Ishag at the Shaabi market in Omdurman on Thursday evening.

“They used a white van with windows painted white as well. They ordered Khatir to embark at gunpoint, and then left to an unknown destination,” he said.

“We searched for him everywhere .. We passed at all the police departments and offices of the National Intelligence and Security Service (NISS), including the Economic Security offices. In vain however.”

Awad Adam Ishag called on the authorities “to act and find him”.
