Agents of the National Intelligence and Security Service (NISS) in Saraf Umra locality, North Darfur, have threatened to gag the coordinator of the Saraf Umra camps for the displaced, should he continue to report to Radio Dabanga and Unamid.

Sheikh Abdelrazeg Yousef Suleiman, the coordinator of the Saraf Umra camps, told Radio Dabanga on Tuesday that NISS sergeant Hamadi Abdelshakour handed his family a letter, warning him not to give any information about the security situation and incidents in the locality to Radio Dabanga, Unamid, or any UN agency.

In case of violation, the letter states, Suleiman will be subjected to “arrest or elimination”.

He said that he will stay committed to “the struggle to report the truth, even if this leads to my death”.
