Police in Northern Bahr El Ghazal State (NBGs) have reported that a 40-year-old Sudanese refugee man who lived at Wedweil resettlement was stabbed to death.

The incident reportedly occurred on Tuesday night, according to police.

NBGs police spokesman, Captain Guot Guot Akol confirmed the incident and said some suspects are being held for investigation.

“We have arrested 11 suspects for investigations, and another suspect is being held inside the camp because he was the one who reported the case to police.” Akol said.

Captain Akol also stated that the suspect being kept at the camp told the police that he could identify the perpetrator if he saw him.

“For that matter, we allowed him (the suspect) to stay in the camp to help us with information to identify the prime suspect.”

The police are also appealing to the refugees to help them identify the prime suspect in the murder case.

Mr. Akol established that the deceased died of knife injuries.

“He was stabbed in the chest, almost to the lower armpit. He was found on the ground, lying down with too much bleeding,” he narrated.

According to Captain Akol, the incident was reported to police by a person whom “we are investigating to provide more information related to the death.”

There are over 4, 000 refugees who fled fighting in neighboring Sudan and are residing at the transit camp in NBGs.

The WedWeil refugees’ transit camp has been fenced by the UN and Humanitarian agencies supporting the refugees.
