Altaghyeer: Wad Medani

Military police in Wad Medani conducted a campaign targeting youths with certain haircuts and styles, the most famous known as “Caboria”. The campaign included beatings, whereas locals described the operation as trivial.

Altaghyeer’s sources affirmed that police vehicles roamed the city’s markets and arrested youth with the intention of ruining their haircuts and physically assaulted them threatening those who objected with jail. Locals showed their growing resentment and called the matter irrelevant as they considered it a total aberration regarding the crises engulfing the State, which suffers from the rainy season disasters such as flooded villages, absence of local transportation and collapsed schools.
