Chad’s long-serving President Idriss Déby Itno has died after clashes with rebels in the north of the country, announcement came just hours after electoral officials had declared him the winner of the April 11 presidential election, paving the way for him to stay in power for six more years.

The announcement came a day after provisional election results projected he would win a sixth term in office.

The government and parliament have been dissolved. A curfew has also been imposed and the borders have been shut.

Mr Déby, 68, spent three decades in power and was one of Africa's longest-serving leaders.

A military council led by Mr Déby's son, a 37-year-old four star general, will govern for the next 18 months.

Mahamat Idriss Déby Itno will lead the council but "free and democratic" elections will be held once the transition period is over, the army said on Tuesday.
