Brigadier General Ali Bareema Hamad, “fell martyr while doing his duties and securing protests”. Two young teenage boys were arrested on suspicion of the crime. They have been subjected to severe beatings and electric shocks.
A statement from the coup forces, namely the police, informed about the following: Brigadier General Ali Bareema Hamad, “fell martyr while doing his duties and securing protests” in the capital Khartoum.
Ali Bareema Hamad “received deadly stabs by groups of protesters..in different parts of his body,” police spokesman Idris Abdalla Idris told. Other police personnel “suffered severe wounds,” he added.
The statement was made on Facebook.
Brigadier General Ali Bareema Hamad was the first fatality announced among coup forces since protests calling for a return to civilian rule began more than two months ago. He died under unclear circumstances.
Various local sources reported on social media that Ali Bareema Hamad was killed a week before. Other sourrces tweeted that the police officer was killed in the early morning of January 13, while the demonstrations started much later that day.
Two young teenage boys were arrested on suspicion of the crime.
Mohamed Adam (17) and Mohamed El Fateh (18) were detained on January 14 on charges of killing the Brigadier General. The young boys have been subjected to severe beatings and electric shocks.
Mohamed Adam was repeatedly beaten on his wounded leg. Mohamed El Fateh was injured in the head and hand.
Lawyer Eman Hasan noted that the two detainees have been questioned about the sources of funding behind the protests and about members of resistance committees, but not about the police brigadier.
Nidal Suleiman, the mother of Mohamed Adam, said that her son was wounded in his leg during the January 13 March of Millions. He was held in front of the Royal Care Hospital in Burri on the morning of January 14.
There are some serious questions to ask.
First, why does a Brigadier General get himself to take a promenade in the middle of burning demonstrations, with uncontrollable RSF forces firing sharp ammunition with air defense weapons?
And, how is it possible that a little teenager with an injured leg manages to catch up with a Brigadier General, overpower the bodyguards, and stab countless times while the bodyguards were present?
Finally, when did the Brigadier General actually die?
Moreover, why do not the torturers ask about the Brigadier General, but only about the sources of funding behind the protests.
Military leaders say their coup has saved Sudan from chaos and say they will protect people’s right to peaceful protest.
Moreover, I think al-Burhan has lost all dignity, honor and identity.
He is an enemy of God, the Sudanese, and the humanity.
