Following her sacking last Friday 4 July, Ms. Touré’s security operatives were withdrawn from her and her private residence.

According to Senegal’s leading online paper Seneweb on Wednesday, her fears were quite justifiable, given the fact that it was during her mandate that several dignitaries were arrested and are being remanded ahead of trials for ill-gotten wealth.

They include Karim Wade (the ex-president’s son) and also the former Chadian dictator Hissene Habre. The source said even some “extremists” of the former Premier’s party were now a threat to her life.
