The Sudanese government has 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, Khartoum, on Thursday.
The Nigerian government condemned the assassination of its national immigration officer and said it would work with Sudan to arrest the culprit.
“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 government said in a short statement.
The Sudanese authorities didn’t disclose the circumstances of the crime or the identity of the killer.
