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.

 

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.
Mokhtar said police had arrested several suspects, but provided no further details.
Officials from the Nigerian Embassy in Khartoum were not available to comment.
Dubai-based al-Arabiya television had earlier described the diplomat’s death as an “assassination”.

Though
intermittent violence is common in Sudan’s ethnically torn southern and
western regions, violence in the capital is rare.

Hassan al-Bashir has recently shaken up the security establishment,
replacing the heads of the army and intelligence service in February. (Reuters)
