Description

Burkina Faso's ousted leader Blaise Compaore has been granted Ivorian citizenship, effectively ending the prospect of his extradition to face murder charges back home. The order was signed by Ivorian President Alassane Ouattara in November 2014, but has only just come to light. Mr Compaore is wanted over his alleged role in the murder of iconic leader Thomas Sankara in 1987. Reports of his citizenship status have caused an uproar in the country with many beliveing that this is an attempt at blocking his extradition by adopting a new nationality.
