The police blamed the NGO for reporting the robbery late.
Six gunmen broke into the offices of an American Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO) working in Sudan on Saturday and escaped with valuables, the local media reported on Sunday.
According to the independent daily Al Khartoum, the gunmen forced their way into the offices of American Refugee Committee (ARC) in Nyala, capital of South Darfur State, before dawn on Saturday and took away six computers, and a safe, among other valuables.
The robbers, however, abandoned the safe down the road because they could not break it.
The gunmen had overpowered the NGOs’ two security guards to gain entrance into the office.
The armed robbery has been reported to the police, which blamed the NGO for making a delayed report, eight hours after the robbery.
