Ibrahim Abdulallah Osman, a businessman was finally able to return to his relatives in El Fashir in northern Darfur, after being released by the gunmen who kidnapped him from in front of his home last Thursday. The incident dates back to last Thursday, when gunmen in a Land Cruiser kidnapped Ibrahim, the owner of the shop “Wad Bakri” in the big market, and his car, a four door Hyundai sedan, at gunpoint from in front of his home, and took him to unknown destination.
One of the businessman’s brothers said that his brother was released last Sunday, but his car is still missing. He added that authorities have started an investigation to catch the perpetrators. The brother didn’t reveal whether or not a ransom had been paid.
