Sudan: Gunman Refuses to Pay for Chicken, Kills Two in North Darfur

Saraf Omra — Two people were killed and a third was severely injured after a gunman refused to pay for the chicken he had just purchased at the Saraf Omra market, North Darfur, on Tuesday, 15 January.

An onlooker told Radio Dabanga the perpetrator, a pro-government militiaman, shot and killed the merchant Abbakar Ismail Musa after he demanded him to pay for the chicken.

Next, the gunman started firing randomly at the market, killing another merchant and severely injuring a third one, a source recounted.

Following the events, civilians, the police and security forces, who were at the market during the shooting, fled the scene and shops were closed.

The pro-government militiaman escaped, the source affirmed.
