Sudan’s Prime Minister Detained by Military in Apparent Coup

The Index Today

The Prime Minister of Sudan Abdalla Hamdok has been detained by Military forces in a coup attempt and was under house arrest. The location of his whereabouts are unknown after he refused to give his support to the coup.

The Sudanese Ministry of Culture and Information stated in a Facebook post that military forces have taken him to an undisclosed location after pressure to sign a pro-coup statement failed. The military has also detained a number of other cabinet members and ministry.

After the removal of Dictator Omar Hassan al-Bashir, his loyalists attempted a coup on authorities a month earlier. In response, protestors took to the streets of the capital to condemn the arrests. The information ministry has stated shutdown of internet connections across the region.

The leading pro-democratic political group, The Sudanese Professionals Association has released warnings on social media saying that the military will seize power and residents must come forward to object the coup. The post read, “The revolution of the people. Power and wealth belongs to the people. No to a military coup.”
