The President of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari has called for a cease-fire in Sudan following the deadly fight that broke out in the country’s capital, Khartoum, between the military and para-military last weekend. 


Speaking on Tuesday during a visit to him in Makkah, Saudi Arabia, by the transitional president of Chad, General Mahamat Idriss Déby Itno, Buhari lamented the situation while describing the fight between the Rapid Support Forces as unwelcome.


In a statement issued by the presidential spokesperson, Mallam Garba Shehu which was obtained by Africa Today News, New York, Buhari also described the fighting that claimed tens of lives as unfortunate.


The two leaders reviewed the unfortunate situation and called on all neighbouring countries and the international community to prevail on the warring sides to stop fighting and negotiate.
