The situation in Chad has become one that deserves utmost attention as the former first lady Hinda Derby Itno and members of her family have fled the war torn country to Yaounde, Cameroun.
Her husband Idriss Derby who won election for the 6th time on April 11, 2021 was killed while fighting rebels, a development that ensued confusion having his son taken over.
But the wife according to reports amid a coup in N’djamena crossed the Chad-Cameroun border incognito and has accepted guarantees of protection and financial security from the 88 year-old President Biya.
Cameroon Intelligence Report gathered that Yaoundé gave her the opportunity to leave N’djamena with the help of French secret service officers operating in Chad.
It was hinted in Yaoundé that Paul Biya’s decision was made in the best interest of the late President Idriss Derby’s children.
Chadian rebels that launched the offensive against the Idriss Derby regime have rejected the transition government led by one of Derby’s sons, four Star General Mahamat Idriss Dérby Itno and have vowed to pursue the offensive.
A state funeral for Derby will be held on Friday, the presidency said.
As Chad’s president, Idriss Derby, exits the political scene in uncertain circumstances, many in the world have begun thinking that Chad might be talking to Cameroon.
The Chadian president had won a landslide victory in a predetermined presidential election like his Cameroonian counterpart, Paul Biya.
The beleaguered Chadian leader was dealing with an insurgency just like his Cameroonian counterpart and had vowed to crush it.
