Burkina Faso’s overthrown Military Chief, Paul-Henri Damiba has agreed to step down two days after army officers announced his deposition.

Damiba offered his resignation in order to avoid confrontations with serious human and material consequences.

A spokesman for the mediation efforts, Hamidou Yameogo, said the President proposed his own resignation in order to avoid clashes.

The Military Chief set seven conditions for stepping down, which include; guarantee of security for his allies in the military, and assurance that those taking power will respect the pledge he gave to West Africa’s regional bloc for a return to civilian rule within two years.
