Omar al-Bashir, Sudan’s ousted president, has been transferred to prison after being arrested on Tuesday night, a BBC reporter in Khartoum confirms.
The whereabouts of Sudan’s ousted President Omar al-Bashir have been a mystery since he was ousted in a military coup last week.
The leaders of the Transitional Military Council have said he was in custody but he has not been seen in public since he was overthrown.
Channel 4 journalist Yousra Elbagir, who has been following the story of protests in Sudan very closely, has tweeted that eyewitnesses have seen the former president in a maximum security prison.
Reuters news agency is quoting two family sources saying that he has been transferred to prison.
Ms Elbagir says that the prison, Kober, is “where many dissidents were detained and executed by his regime”.
