Deposed Sudanese dictator Omar Al-Bashir was on Wednesday transferred from Khartoum Prison to Kober Maximum Security prison, where dissidents were detained, executed by his regime.
“Last night, Bashir was transferred to Kober prison in Khartoum,” the source told AFP said without revealing his name for security reasons.
Reports say the ex-leader has until now been detained at the presidential residence under heavy guard. He is reportedly being held in solitary confinement and is surrounded by tight security.
During his three-decade rule, Omar al-Bashir sent many of his political opponents to Kobar prison. Now his relatives say that’s where he’s been taken.
According to BBC, The conditions at Kobar prison are shockingly different from the splendour of the presidential residence, where he had been under house arrest since Thursday.
Bashir was ousted by the army last Thursday after four months of protests against his three decades of iron-fisted rule. The country’s new military rulers had said he was being held “in a secure place”.
