It is a major revelation that the former aide-de-camp of the late Burkinabè president has just made. Moussa Diallo cited the names of Thomas Sankara’s murderers.
On the sidelines of an interview with Jeune Afrique, the former companion of Thomas Sankara returned to the circumstances of the fall and the assassination of his mentor on October 15, 1987.
According to him, the responsibilities in the assassination are now quite clear. “Blaise Compaoré was the organizer, Gilbert Diendéré was the supervisor, and Yacinthe Kafando led the commando that executed him,” he revealed.
As everyone awaits the opening of the trial, scheduled in a few days, before the military court in the Burkinabe capital, Moussa Diallo did not beat about the bush to name Sankara’s alleged killers.
“When you are an officer, there is an ethic to respect. And when you have done something, you have to take responsibility for it. Blaise Compaoré and Gilbert Diendéré never took responsibility for what they did and showed that they had no ethics,” said the former aide-de-camp to Thomas Sankara.
