Republic of Chad’s capital, The N’Djemena was rocked by violent protests on Tuesday morning as demonstrators took to the streets demanding a return to civilian rule after the military took after.
Protesters took to the streets burning tyres and French flags asking for the dissolution of the transitional military council.
The protesters are also calling for an inclusive dialogue that should result in free, fair and transparent elections.
However, the military junta has replied the people’ protest with the use of force.
Riot police and elements of the presidential guard were seen around several neighborhoods, entering houses in search of possible demonstrators.
The internet has also been cut off to limit the flow of information.
The military took over following President Idriss Deby’s battlefield death last week.
The rising tension is starting to raise concerns that Chad could descend irretrievably into chaos.
The country is also facing a rebel incursion as rebel group, the Front for Alternation and Concord in Chad are fighting to overthrow the military junta.
Although the rebels recently offered to dialogue with the military but the offer was rejected by the ruling military council.
