Bendessey Camp / Mukjar Camp — Armed herders are being accused of stabbing a displaced resident from Bendessey camp and another one from Mukjar camp in Central Darfur on Friday November 23, witnesses told Radio Dabanga.
A witness said that camel herders reportedly stabbed and severly beat the displaced person Adam Abdullah on Friday evening in an area east of Bendessey camp in Central Darfur.
He explained that the herders attacked Abdullah when he tried to chase them from his farm, adding that he was taken to a hospital nearby for treatment. The witness stated that the incident has been reported to the police.
In a separate incident, armed herders allegedly stabbed a displaced resident from Mukjar camp when he refused to hand over his mobile phone.
Residents from both camps have reported several similar incidents to the authorities, without any follow-up from the authorities, even though a committee for peaceful coexistence between farmers and herders to stop the abuse of farmers is present in the region, witnesses added to Radio Dabanga.
