RSF militia troops rape two women, rob villagers in Central Darfur
Members of the Rapid Support Forces (RSF) raped two young women in the area of Jildo, Nierteti locality, on Tuesday. They further robbed a number of people at gunpoint. One man was seriously injured.
A villager told Radio Dabanga from Jildo that the paramilitary RSF troops, commanded by the security apparatus, are wreaking havoc and molesting people living in the area during the past two days.
“The most recent assaults were the gang-rape of two young women, aged 20 and 17, and the robbery of a number of people from the neighbouring villagers on their way to the Jildo market,” he reported. “Omar Karam sustained critical injuries, when he confronted the robbers.”
He said that residents of the area informed the military commander of Jildo garrison and the commissioner of Nierteti locality about the assaults, but both told them that they do not have any authority over the RSF militia.
“The people gave the authorities 72 hours to resolve the problem and protect them from those militiamen. Otherwise, they will leave the area to seek refuge in Nierteti town and other places.”
