The Head Sheikh of Camp Murnei for the displaced in West Darfur has been murdered, allegedly by armed herdsmen, as he worked on his farm at Arum area west of Murnei on Wednesday.

A camp resident told Radio Dabanga that Abdelrasoul Aburifa was tilling his farm when a gang of three armed herders opened fire on him. Aburifa died instantly.

The witness said police managed to arrest one of the alleged perpetrators while the other two are still being hunted-down.
