Recall that the military seized the two and Defense Minister Souleymane Doucouré on Monday night. They were transferred to the Kati Military Camp, which is located near Bamako, Mali’s capital.

 

 

 

The development occurred months after ex-President Ibrahim Boubacar Keita was deposed in a coup.

 

In response, UN Secretary-General António Guterres issued a statement demanding the leaders’ immediate release.

 

 

 

The detention of Mali’s temporary President, Bah Ndaw, and Prime Minister, Moctar Ouane, was also criticised by the Nigerian government in a statement released.

 

Ferdinand Nwoye, the Nigerian Foreign Affairs spokesperson, expressed concern that the action could jeopardise peace efforts and the timeline for the return of democratic rule in Mali.
