The Sudanese Prime Minister, Dr. Abdullah Hamdouk, said that the Fataburno and Kutum  incidents in North Darfur, emphasize the urgent need for peace in  Darfur region.

Hamdouk’s statements came against  backdrop of an attack by armed militias, riding motorcycles and horses, on Monday morning, in the area of Fataburno, which resulted in the death of 9 people and dozens of injuries, alongside widespread looting of the citizens’ property.

The government of North Darfur has  declared a state of emergency throughout the state from today Tuesday, until further notice.

Abdallah Hamouk wrote on his Facebook Page  “incidents like Fataburno and Kutum ones, emphasiz an urgent  need to achieve peace and adopt an institutional approach based on accountability and  the
rule of law”.

Certainly, the continued unnecessary loss of life is a real obstacle to the country’s democratic transformation. If it is not directly confronted and addressed, it will slow down the pace of change and
prosperity in Sudan. May the  souls of the victims of these incidents rest in peace , and I wish a speedy recovery for the wounded and the injured. God save Sudan and the people of Sudan” Hamdouk concluded.
