Awad Mohamed Ahmed Ibn Auf, the military chief who led the coup that ousted long-serving Omar al-Bashir has resigned his position.

He named Lt Gen Abdel Fattah Abdelrahman Burhan as his successor, following renewed protests that the coup leaders were too close to ousted leader al-Bashir.

The move comes barely 48-hours after the military high command announced taking power from Bashir.

Awad had only in February this year been named defense minister in what is now Bashir’s last cabinet reshuffle.
