South Darfur merchant kidnapped for ransom
Gunmen kidnapped a merchant from his farm in South Darfur on Sunday. Merchants at the market of Kass closed their shops in protest against the kidnap.
A relative of Adam Abdallah told Radio Dabanga that the perpetrators of the kidnap have demanded a ransom for his release. “A team of locals set out to search for him. Police nor government officials have aided them so far.”
Abdallah, a well-known merchant in Kass, was kidnapped by armed men on his farm north of Kass. The group was able to trace their tracks which led them to the east of Gunmeiza.
“The kidnappers said that they have tied down Adam with shackles to a tree at Adam Kik,” the relative said.
Last week militiamen kidnapped two farmers at Rahad Zarroug in Gireida locality. South Darfur security authorities have seized “hundreds of illegal vehicles” from abroad.
