Northern Kordofan governor Ahmed Mohamed Haroun announced on Friday the renewal of the state of emergency in the region.
The decision came as a part of the disarmament campaign and the need to eradicate the outlaws.
Since August، the Sudanese authorities launched a campaign to collect illegal weapons. The campaign، which would be implemented across the country، began by disarming tribes and civilians in Kordofan and Darfur.
in December، the Sudanese parliament spokesperson Abdel-Maged Haroun said the council of ministers will lodge a temporary presidential decree to impose the state of emergency in some states to back up the collection of illicit weapons.
It is noteworthy that demonstrations broke out in several Sudanese states in September 2013 following the government’s decision to lift fuel subsidies. Rights groups said that at least 200 people were killed but the government put the death toll at 85.
