Spokesperson Of Armed Group Accused Of Killing Idris Deby Returns To Chad

FACT is allegedly responsible for the death of late Chadian leader, Idris Deby Itno, and its spokesperson has returned to Chad.

Kingabe Ogouzeimi de Tapol, spokesperson of the Chadian rebel group Front pour l’Alternance et la Concorde au Tchad (FACT) has returned to the country. 

The FACT spokesperson who has been in exile for 30 years arrived in Chad on the morning of Wednesday, Jan. 26.

He was met on arrival at the N’Djamena airport by Chadian Minister of Communication and Government spokesperson, Abdraman Oulamallah, and the Minister of State in charge of Reconciliation, Acheikh Ibn Oumar.

The return of the FACT leader was facilitated by the open-arms policy of the Chadian transitional authorities who have been calling on all those in the exile to return home. It also falls in line with the inclusive national dialogue envisaged by the government next month.

FACT is considered as the rebel group that was responsible for the death of former Chadian leader, Idriss Deby Itno on April 18, 2021 at the war front.

The group is suspected to have infiltrated Chadian territory from Libya on April 11, 2021, the date of the presidential elections in the country. It is led by Mahamat Mahdi and its spokesperson is Kingabe Ogouzeimi de Tapo.
