The militia leader who helped Ouattara defeat Gbagbo was killed on Wednesday, 27/04/2011 in a gun battle. He was asked to disarm by the President but refused. Apparently they were in the process of disarming. He was killed in a fight that broke out in Abidjan close to the headquarters of the militia. He is sort of a hero because he helped topple Gbagbo’s regime. I hope Ivory Coast can put all of these behind and focus on important development issues.
