Sudanese govt arrests woman who allegedly killed Nigerian diplomat

Sudanese PoliceThe Sudanese government announced the arrest of a woman accused of killing an Immigration Attaché at the Nigerian embassy in Khartoum.

The Consular officer, Habibu Almu, was found stabbed to death at his home in the Sudanese capital city of Khartoum on last week Thursday.

The Nigerian government condemned the assassination of its national immigration officer in Khartoum and said they would work with Khartoum to arrest the culprit.

However, a very short statement by the Sudanese authorities on Saturday (12 May 2018) read in part: “The police arrested the offender, a foreign woman who committed the crime. She confessed the murder of the Nigerian official and the stolen possessions.”

The Sudanese authorities didn’t disclose the circumstances of the crime or the nationality of the killer.
