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 childrenâ€™s rights, have demanded the immediate release of Mohamed Ibrahim Abdel Rahman Juma (15), detained by the security apparatus in Khartoum since 26 April.
â€śJuma is a student of the Abdallah Nafi Basic School at the Zamzam camp,â€ť a member of the Zamzam camp network told Radio Dabanga. â€śAfter 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.â€ť
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. â€śThey 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.â€ť
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.
