The military junta in Gabon has arrested one of the sons of Gabonese President Ali Bongo Ondimba. He was arrested for “treason”.
JomogNews reported that on Wednesday, Gabonese Senior Military officers overthrew Ali Bongo, who was recently re-elected for a third term.
The ousted president has also been placed under house arrest alongside some of his family members. “President Ali Bongo is under house arrest, surrounded by his family and doctors,” they said in a statement read out on state TV.
The coupists struck in the early hours of Wednesday, annulling Saturday’s election, which Bongo was declared to have won.
The soldiers announced the dissolution of all the institutions of the republic, the parliament, and shut down Gabon’s borders, saying their actions were on behalf of the central African nation’s security and defence forces.
On July 26, a Military junta deposed Nigerien democratically-elected president, Mohammed Bazoum.

SSANU SETS TO JOIN NLC STRIKE ACTION THIS WEEK
The Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities has said it will join the proposed strike of the Nigeria Labour Congress.
Recently, the NLC and Trade Union Congress declared an indefinite strike action from October 3, 2023, to protest the insensitivity of the government in providing palliatives to cushion the effects of the removal of fuel subsidy.
SSANU, in a communique issued at the end of the 45th regular National Executive Council, held at the University of Maiduguri, Borno State, and made available to The PUNCH on Sunday, read, “NEC in session after due deliberations agreed that SSANU as an affiliate of the NLC, will join the strike to protest the insensitivity of government in providing palliatives to cushion the effects of removal of fuel subsidy.
NEC, therefore, mandated all branches to mobilise her members to join the strike as declared as the demands before government also includes the release of withheld salaries of university workers.”
The communique, signed by the SSANU national president, Mr. Mohammed Ibrahim, complained that it felt seriously agitated by the report of the ad hoc Committee of Pro-Chancellors of state-owned universities, which among other things, recommended that state universities should not participate in nationwide industrial actions.
“It was obvious that SSANU complied with all legal provisions including giving adequate notices to the appropriate authorities but were forced to embark on that strike due to the government’s failure to honour her part of the agreement.
“SSANU, therefore, earnestly requests the government to pay the withheld salaries without any further delay considering the harsh economic realities currently faced by citizens in the country as the government is aware, the value for the money has already been eroded by hyperinflation.”
“NEC recalled the renegotiation of salaries for her members with the committee led by the late Professor Nimi Briggs that was at the final stage where SSANU demanded 700 per cent wage increase but the committee offered a 23.5 per cent and 35 per cent review to our members,” it read.
