Governor: Border Shutdown with Eritrea Made Disarmament Campaign Easier

Khartoum - (SMC) Governor of Sudan’s eastern state of Kassala Adam Jamaa said the closure of borders with Eritrea has significantly contributed to the success of the disarmament campaign.
Sudanese Media Center (SMC) quoted Jamaa as saying 85% of the illicit weapons have been collected during the voluntary phase of the disarmament campaign.
He pointed out that the shutdown of borders and the deployment of the RSF have largely contributed to the success of the campaign.
The governor added the regular forces are working to combat negative phenomena and control security breaches on the borders, praising awareness of the residents and their support of the disarmament campaign.
He further pointed to the importance of the emergency order, saying it facilitates work of the security organs and allows them to take prompt measures against irregularities.
Since August last year, the Sudanese authorities launched a campaign to collect illegal weapons.
