Colonel Boureima Kere Staff, former chief of personal staff of the President, and deemed to be a close general Diendéré Gilbert, was arrested on October 2.
Before him, the captain Dao, often presented as one of the masterminds of the coup, was arrested on September 29, when he had to surrender to loyalist forces. The day before, Zoumbri captain, another alleged instigator of the coup who are not to blame collaborating in the disarmament process, which he had yet borne, was also arrested by the police, while traveling the Council of the agreement.
Three young lieutenants have also been detained. However, the commander Abdul Aziz Korogo, body acting head of the regiment, was heard but do not care for now. After conducting negotiations with loyalist units, he was accused of treason by men and the RSP has cautiously returned to the armed forces.
