The ousted Malian President Ibrahim Boubacar Keita is dead. His Justice Minister and ex-advisor told The Reuters on Sunday.
President Ibrahim Boubacar was 76 years and the cause of his death is not yet ascertained.
Late Keita popularly known as IBK, ruled the West African Country from September 2013 to August 2020; that was a turbulent period that saw a violent Islamic Insurgency take over vast areas of the centre and north, helping drown his popularity.
Keita was forced out of government by a military coup after months of anti-government protests. His former advisor said he died at home in the capital of Bamako
