This week, Wani recounted their suffering at the hands of Sudanese security forces, colloquially known as the “Agents of Fear.” Learn everything you need to know about the Meriam Ibrahim’s Case, here.
08/06/2014 Sudan (Christian Post) – The husband of persecuted Sudanese Christian Meriam Ibrahim spoke out this week regarding the terrorism his family faced from a secret police force known as the “Agents of Fear.”
Daniel Wani said that the agents intercepted his family in the Khartoum International Airport as they were trying to leave the country last month.
Ibrahim was arrested in January and sentenced to death for apostasy after she married Wani, a Christian man.
Although she was raised by an Ethiopian Orthodox Christian mother, Ibrahim is considered Muslim under Sharia law because that is the faith of her estranged father. Her sentence was overturned on appeal on June 23.
Ibrahim, her husband, and their children, Martin, 21-months-old, and Maya, two-months-old, tried to leave the country the day after the appeal decision, but were arrested at the airport for allegedly possessing false travel documents.
“We got the papers,” Wani told the Daily Mail. “We got permission to travel through the VIP area. I don’t know why they did that, it’s stupid. They made a mistake and wanted to cover it up and they didn’t have a stop order.”
Wani said that the Agents of Fear tried to beat them up, and that their attorneys were assaulted and had to flee the scene.
