A group of gunmen abducted a resident of Sese camp in Kereinik locality on Thursday.

Two days later, they contacted his family, and demanded a ransom of SDG3,000 ($501), one of his relatives told Radio Dabanga.

He said that the gunmen, riding in a Land Cruiser, ambushed Mohamed Abdallah Idris and his wife when they were collecting firewood east of the camp.

They beat them with their rifle butts, after which they took Idris to an unknown destination.
