25 March 2014. Mellit: Children stare at the remnant of a mortar projectil recently abandoned in the Alabassi camp for Internally Displaced People (IDP), in Mellit, North Darfur following clashes in early March. Unexploded Ordnances (UXOs) are explosive weapons (bombs, bullets, shells, grenades, land mines, etc.) that did not explode when they were employed and still pose a risk of detonation, potentially many decades after they were used or discarded. 4 April is International Day of Mine Awareness. In Darfur, as a consequence of the ongoing conflict, UXOs present a serious risk for civilians, especially children. Photo by Albert Gonzalez Farran, UNAMID

Diplomacy can be dangerous. Nigerian diplomats have come under attack in various places in the last few decades.  The Nigerian Immigration Attache I at the Nigerian Mission in Khartoum, Sudan, has been killed by gunmen at his official residence.

According to the ministry of foreign affairs the untimely death of Mr Habibu Almu is a great loss to the country.

A ministry source, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because of safety concerns, said Mr Habibu Almu  “was resting in   his house when armed men shot him and fled.”

“They did not take his belongings and his mobile,” the source said.

Meanwhile, Ministry spokesperson Tope Elias Fatile, said the Nigerian government and its Sudanese counterpart are doing everything possible to ensure that those behind the dastardly  act are made to face the full wrath of the law.
