UN condemns killing of Nigerian peace-keeper in Sudan

United nations, UN, Secretary-General, Ban Ki Moon, and the United Nations Security Council, UNSC, have condemned the killing, last Friday, of a Nigerian UNAMID peacekeeper in Sudan.

The Nigerian was killed by unidentified armed assailants during an attack on a UNAMID military position in Muhajeria, East Darfur, Sudan.

Two peacekeepers were also injured in the incident. The UNSC, in a statement, said it strongly condemned the attack on UNAMID peacekeepers, and urged the Sudanese government to “swiftly to investigate the incident and bring the perpetrators to justice.”

UNAMID on its part said it was investigating the events surrounding the incident and is currently working with the Sudanese government.
