In a statement on Chadian television on Monday, the army spokesman, General Azem Agouna, said that, “the President of the Republic, Head of State, Supreme Head of the Armed Forces, Idriss Déby Itno, has just had his last breath in defending territorial integrity on the battlefield. It is with deep bitterness that we announce to the Chadian people the death on Tuesday of Marshal of Chad.”

The Libyan Foreign Ministry has also called for a smooth and peaceful transfer of power in Chad. In addition, it announced the establishment of an emergency room to closely follow the situation.
