President Hassan Omar El Bashir has reportedly been removed from power after months of protests that rocked Khartoum.
Hundreds of thousands of protestors have been camping outside the military headquarters as well as the Presidential palace calling for his resignation.
Bashir who has been in power for 30 years had vowed not to leave. He had unleashed his militia that was attacking and killing demonstrators.
On Thursday morning, the military surrounded his Presidential Palace, the state television as well as state radio, signaling the end of the strongman.
On Tuesday, the police rejected calls to attack demonstrators and called on other forces not to engage the demonstrators.
The end of Bashir’s regime comes weeks after that of Abdelaziz Bouteflika of Algeria who was forced to quit after months of demonstrations.
The Sudan’s military will be making an announcement on the way forward.
