VIDEO: ‘Make noise, I’ve been arrested’- Gabon’s Ali Bongo begs ‘friends’ for help


A video has surfaced on social media of ousted Gabon President, Ali Bongo where he was begging his international friends to make noise following Wednesday’s coup.


In the 51-second, Bongo confirmed that he had been arrested and isolated from his son and wife, who he said were held at another place.


The putschists highlighted serious institutional, political, economic, and social crises as factors responsible for the coup that they tagged,  ‘necessary’ for the progress of the West African country.


Bongo said, “My name is Ali Bongo Ondimba, President of Gabon. I am sending a message to all friends that we have all over the world, to tell them to make noise, to make noise”
