Burkina Faso: 11 people in police custody for a drug affair murdered

Eleven people who were in police custody at the Ouagadougou Drug Unit were found dead on Monday.

They were found dead on the premises of the Ouagadougou Drug Unit, where they were in police custody “for drug-related offences”, according to a statement by Burkina Faso prosecutor Maiza Sérémé.

An “investigation was opened”, said the prosecutor, who went to the scene with “her surbodinates and assisted by the technical services”.

“Forensic doctors have been called to carry out the necessary examinations and autopsies,” Maiza Sérémé added in her statement, in which she also expressed “her deepest sympathy to the grieving families.

No details have so far been filtered on the first elements of the investigation. Christophe Dabiré, Prime Minister, assured that “firm instructions have been given to clarify this unacceptable tragedy and administer sanctions”.
