Three suspects have been held after a young mother and her father were gunned down on their farm at Kosa area northeast of Tawila in North Darfur on Friday morning.

Community leader Omda Mukhtar Bosh told Radio Dabanga that four gunmen wearing military uniforms and riding camels attacked Ibrahim Juma (51) and his family when they were tending their farm at Kosa.

Juma and his 16-year-old daughter Nabila were killed instantly by a hail of gunfire.

Bosh added that a local rescue team and a joint force from Tawila pursued the alleged perpetrators and arrested three of them. The suspects have been transferred to the North Darfur capital of El Fasher for questioning.

He confirmed that Nabila’s murder orphaned her baby girl who was born just two weeks ago.
