The Federal Government on Monday condemned mutiny by soldiers in Sudan which brings to five the number of Coups De’tat in Africa from 2020 to 2021.
Nigeria through the Ministry of Foreign Affairs called on the mutineers to immediately implement the agreed roadmap aimed at returning the country to constitutional government.
A statement on Monday by Esther Sunsuwa, Spokesperson for the Ministry said that the federal government condemned “the coup d’état that has taken place in Sudan, in which the military has dissolved the civilian component of the transitional government and arrested its leaders.”
The statement also “calls for the immediate release of the Prime Minister and all political prisoners and an immediate restoration of the transitional government and implementation of the agreed roadmap to return the country to constitutional democracy.”
