Khartoum, 03 November, 2021 / 9:00 pm (ACI Africa).
The leadership of the Christian Solidarity Worldwide (CSW) has expressed concern about the attempt on the lives of those who worked for the civilian government before the October 25 military coup in Sudan.
According to the organization, there has been an attempt on the lives of Boutros Badawi, adviser to the Minister of Religious Affairs, and Taha Osman, a member of the anti-corruption Committee tasked with dismantling institutions set up by the government of the country’s former President Omar al Bashir.
“We are gravely concerned by these highly planned assassination attempts targeting former members of the civilian-led government and its committees,” Scot Bower, CSW’s CEO, says in a Wednesday, November 3 report.
Mr. Badawi was reportedly attacked on October 27 at around 8 p.m. as he was walking to his home in the country’s capital, Khartoum, according to CSW.
In the November 3 report, CSW officials say that Mr. Badawi realized he was being trailed by two people when one of them fired his gun at him but missed. Mr. Badawi reportedly escaped his assailants by seeking refuge in a nearby house and leaving through a back route.
