The unnamed official, AFP reported, was shot by men from the Central Office for the Suppression of Banditry (OCRB) who mistook him for a bandit.

The incident reportedly took place after the OCRB men spotted aide with a weapon in his car and pursued him till his residence in Bangui.

The Central African Republic President Faustin-Archange Touadera has reportedly apologised for the shooting of the embassy official.

The Sudanese foreign affairs ministry is yet to comment on the incident.

At least 24 people were reportedly killed and about 170 wounded in an attack targeting a church and a mosque in Bangui.

      Eastern
      Was this nyor doing some surveillance for a break-in sometime? Why didn’t he stop and identify himself as a diplomat but chose to be pursued like a wayward criminal? Was the jienge virtue of stealing and robbing resurfacing even in foreign countries? Has the "voodoo economy" pushed jienges now to steal, even in poor CAR? Oh Jienges.

        Eastern and jubaone,

        Coward, weak and stupid people like you should not celebrate when someone dies. Who knows? Two of you will be tomorrow. Our country is moving on. We pray for God to keep his soul in peace. We crushed rebellion in South Sudan. There is only one thing you can do, cry.

        Guys, you need not to celebrate the death of a human being to that extend as if you will not be going to the same grave. The guy who was killed in CAR Bangui is not from South Sudan nor from Dinka based on your falsely assumption and bad wishes.The man was from Sudanese Embassy and Sudan Foreign Affairs ministry have summoned the Embassy of CAR for Justification on the death of its official killed

    Mr. Eastern,

    That is irresponsible comment. It could be you tomorrow, it could be somebody related to you or me. He was not killed of how he look like or how he addressed but because a gun was spotted in his car. All aides assigned to any diplomatic missions any where in the world, do carry guns. Therefore, he was mistakenly killed and the president has apologized.
