Unicef, the Network for the Protection of Children of the Zamzam camp for the displaced in North Darfur, and organisations working in the field of children’s rights, have demanded the immediate release of Mohamed Ibrahim Abdel Rahman Juma (15), detained by the security apparatus in Khartoum since 26 April.
“Juma is a student of the Abdallah Nafi Basic School at the Zamzam camp,” a member of the Zamzam camp network told Radio Dabanga. “After he successfully completed the seventh year, he travelled with his uncle, Mohamed Ahmed (21), to Khartoum to search for work there during the school holiday.”
The network member explained that Juma and his uncle were arrested by security forces, immediately after they arrived at the El Obeid bus station in Khartoum. “They were transported to a security office in Khartoum. After three days, the uncle was brought back to El Obeid bus station in a vehicle with tinted windows.”
The uncle told his family that he has not seen or heard from his nephew since the day they were captured. They were detained in separate cells.
