Mali Military have released the President of Mali, Bah Ndaw and Prime Minister, Moctar Ouane, after resigned in the presence of mediators visiting the military base on Wednesday.
This is coming three days after the interim president and premier were detained and stripped of their powers in what appears like the second coup in nine months.
A military official who spoke with AFP on condition of anonymity, said, “The interim president and prime minister were released overnight around 1:30 am (0130 GMT). We were true to our word.”
The development was also confirmed by their family members on Thursday.
Though the conditions of their release were not stated, the two men have returned to their homes in the capital Bamako.
They were released by the military following the demands of the international community.
