KHARTOUM (DAILYNEWS UG) – A Nigerian diplomat was found dead in his home in the Sudanese capital Khartoum on Thursday, two security sources said, in an apparent murder that police said did not appear to be politically motivated.
Almu, an Immigration attaché at the Nigerian Mission in Khartoum, was found dead in his home in Sudan, yesterday.
Police spokesman Omar al-Mokhtar said the unidentified diplomat, who had been working in the immigration section of the Nigerian Embassy, was stabbed to death and police had ruled out the possibility it was a terrorist attack.
Though intermittent violence is common in Sudan’s ethnically torn southern and western regions, violence in the capital is rare.
President Omar Hassan al-Bashir has recently shaken up the security establishment, replacing the heads of the army and intelligence service in February.
