                               SR. HASSAN SHOT AND KILLED BY UNIDENTIFIED PEOPLE IN DILLING, SUDAN

      On 2nd December 2023, three unidentified persons shot and killed Mr. Hassan Ibrahim in Dilling town, for unknown reasons. The case was reported to Dilling police but the police did not respond.

    On 2nd December 2023 at about 8:00 PM (Sudan time), three (3) unidentified gunmen riding motorcycles shot Mr. Hassan Ibrahim on the chest and he died instantly. He was shot at in front of his house in Algalaa neighbourhood of Dilling town. The reason behind the assassination Mr. Hassan remains unknown. His family members reported the case to Dilling central police office, but the police did not bother to carry out investigations.

   An activist form Dilling spoke to HUDO Centre saying that “These days Dilling town is experiencing severe tribal conflicts between Arab tribes and Nuba tribes and that incidents of murder and assassinations were frequently happening yet police does not investigate or apprehend the perpetrators. Also, the authorities are not putting in place the necessary measures to stop the conflict”.

    Mr. Hassan Ibrahim (43 years), married, was the former director of martyr organization in Dilling. Algalaa is in the neighbourhood of Dilling town, the capital of Dilling locality in South Kordofan State / Nuba Mountains.

     HUDO Centre is very concerned about the security situation and the safety of civilians in conflict areas especially now when the conflict between SAF and RSF is happening. We call upon;

 Police in South Kordofan State\Nuba Mountains to investigate this case immediately.

 The prosecutor in South Kordofan State\Nuba Mountains to ensure that there is rule of law.

 The security committee in South Kordufan State should take the necessary measures to mitigate the tribal conflict.
