Sudanese Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok has returned home with his wife under tight security, the prime minister’s office said on its Facebook account on Tuesday.

Since early Monday, Hamdok and some of his ministers together with civilian members in the Sovereign Council were arrested.

Earlier on Tuesday, General Commander of the Sudanese Armed Forces Abdel Fattah Al-Burhan denied arrest of Hamdok, saying the prime minister is staying at Al-Burhan’s house at the Guest Palace.

Since a coup attempt on Septmber 21 in Sudan, the tensions between the military and civilian partners, who were assuming the transitional government, have continued to escalate.
