The government of the Central Africa Republic (CAR) confirmed yesterday that the leader of the Democratic Front of the Central African People (FDPC), one of many armed groups terrorizing the country, had been arrested in Chad.
According to government spokesman Ange Maxime Kazagui, Abdoulaye Miskine had been arrested at Harare Mangueigne on the Chad-CAR border and was later taken to N’Djamena, the capital of Chad.
“We are seeking his extradition,” he added.
Miskine was one of the 14 militant groups’ leaders to sign a peace agreement in Khartoum with CAR President Faustin-Archange Touadera in February 2019. As part of the peace deal, he was awarded the position of an advisor to the new government but failed to take it up.
Even though the violent acts do not occur as often as before the the Khartoum accord, the fighting between the rebel groups continues increasing the toll among the civilians.
