West Darfur Governor Abducted & Killed By RSF

0

Sudan’s West Darfur Governor Khamis Abdallah Abkar was killed, shortly after he blamed the Rapid Support Forces (RSF) paramilitary group for violence. RSF blames the murder on tribal violence. No one expected RSF to admit their abuses – but their statement is shameful. You can see a clear influence of the Wagner Group in how RSF communicates to the public.

EL-GENEINA JUNE 15: A provincial governor in Sudan is the latest victim of the military conflict that’s been raging in the East African nation since mid-April. And the killing of the governor – in the West Darfur State – may have happened – simply because of an interview he gave to a TV station.

Sudan’s West Darfur Governor Khamis Abdallah Abkar was killed, shortly after he blamed the Rapid Support Forces (RSF) paramilitary group for violence in the state.

Rapid Support Forces has made a statement through its official Twitter account:

– “The Rapid Support Forces condemn in the strongest terms the killing of the governor of West Darfur state, Khamis Abdullah Abkar, at the hands of two outlaws yesterday, Wednesday, against the background of the raging tribal conflict in the state”.

– “Our forces have completely distanced themselves from interfering in the conflict in West Darfur and have continued to follow developments of events and warn against them”.

Further in their statement, they come up with dubious afterthought constructions about the identity of the killers.

– “The tribal battles were run by the military intelligence in the state, the latest of which was yesterday’s battles, on Wednesday, against which the governor, Khamis Abdullah Abkar, was killed by two outlaws from one of the tribal components that raided his residence”.

No one probably expected RSF to admit their abuses – but their statement is shameful and an attempt to once again lie free of a crime. This is yet another crime for the ICC to investigate and punish those directly guilty.

You can see a clear influence of the Wagner Group in how RSF communicates to the public. But RSF should know better than to let Russians handle public relations.

It doesn’t matter how many lies and dubious statements are made. The matter is clear: RSF murdered Darfur Governor Khamis Abdallah Abkar.
