An anti-government demonstration has been called for in Abidjan on Saturday, October 10, as part of ongoing calls denouncing a possible third term by incumbent President Alassane Ouattara. The rally, called for by former president and opposition candidate Henri Konan Bedie, is set to take place in Plateau district at the Felix Houphouet Boigny stadium and will reportedly commence from 09:00 (local time), and continue throughout the day. Due to a ban on gatherings, the event is likely to be tightly policed with the potential to escalate into clashes.
A heightened security presence and localized travel disruptions should be anticipated in the vicinity of the event.
Those in Abidjan are advised to monitor developments, avoid large gatherings as a precaution, and adhere to all instructions issued by the local authorities.
