People in Umdum Haj Ahmed in North Kordofan ignited the locality buildings on Saturday, in protest against the detention of a student from the area by agents of the National Intelligence and Security Service (NISS).

A listener told Radio Dabanga that the residents of Umdum Haj Ahmed locality burned the offices of the locality’s executive director, the financial department, the administration, and the engineering department on Saturday afternoon.

He said that the arson was in retaliation for the security apparatus’ arrest of student Mohamed Hamid in the locality on Thursday evening. He was taken to the NISS headquarters in El Obeid, the capital of North Kordofan.

The source could not tell the reason for Hamid’s detention.
