The commander of the military garrison in Tawila, North Darfur, has taken measures to prevent further assaults on the population of the locality.

Omda Mukhtar Bosh, coordinator of the Tawila camps for the displaced, informed Radio Dabanga that Commander Ayoub Mustafa Mohamed had invited village elders and herders for a meeting on Tuesday.

“The commander told them that from Wednesday onwards, force will be used against any soldier or militiaman, who dares to assault and rob civilians in the locality.”

Bosh added that a force made up of army troops and members of the paramilitary Central Reserve Police, and the Popular Defence Forces, was able to recover 2,000 head of sheep, stolen by elements of a government militia from the Dali camp on Sunday.

“Two of the thieves were arrested, and taken to El Fasher, capital of North Darfur,” he said.
