United Nations, UN, has requested a quick arrival of the Malian President, the Prime Minister and the other government authorities captured and kept by rebellion officers.

UN head, Antonio Guterres requested the.release of the two men who were removed on Tuesday by rebel troopers.

A statement by Guterres’ spokesman, Stephane Dujarric, said “The Secretary-General strongly condemns these actions and calls for the immediate restoration of constitutional order and rule of law in Mali.

“To this end, he demands the immediate and unconditional release of President Ibrahim Boubacar Keita and members of his cabinet.”

“Guterres is following the unfolding developments in the capital Bamako “with deep concern,” Dujarric added.

“The secretary-general reiterates his calls for a negotiated solution and peaceful resolution of their differences.

“The secretary-general urges all stakeholders, particularly the defence and security forces, to exercise maximum restraint and uphold the human rights and individual freedoms of all Malians,” the spokesman said.

It provided details regarding Tuesday that Malian fighters captured the nation’s leader, Ibrahim Boubacar and Prime Minister Boubou Cisse.

Revolutionary fighters had on Tuesday gathered together senior government and military officials in Kati town and somewhere else.

During the capture, there were a huge number of residents cheering the ouster.

Groups are jubilating at Independence Square in Bamako, Mali, and different spots.

For almost three months, exhibitions requesting Keita’s acquiescence were held.

Dozens lost their lives, a situation that worsened the crisis.

Keita’s expulsion comes in the midst of the mediation by the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS).
