Army troops and elements of the Rapid Support Forces reportedly raped and robbed a number of citizens, and torched two villages during their withdrawal from Golo, Central Darfur, after their defeat on Monday.
Mustafa Tambour, the military spokesman for the Sudan Liberation Movement, led by Abdel Wahid El Nur (SLM-AW), told Radio Dabanga that the government forces, after being defeated by the SLM-AW in the area of Golo, wreaked havoc in the area.
“While retreating, they set the villages of Dar El Salam and Degeina on fire; they raped 11 women, three of them minors, and pillaged a number of commercial vehicles en route from Kutum to Golo.”
Tambour called via Radio Dabanga upon “all Darfuri activists and lawyers, in Sudan, and abroad to file a case at the International Criminal Court against Central Darfur State Governor, Jaafar Abdel Hakam, and the leaders of the Rapid Support militia, Maj. Gen. Abbas Abdel Aziz and Brig. Hemeti”.
The military spokesman added that the number of government forces fallen in the battle of Golo on Monday, increased to 31. “Our forces also seized six Dushka machineguns, a large number of RPGs, and a variety of heavy weapons and ammunition.”
