Senegal is rocked by protests following the imprisonment of opposition leader Sonko.

Conflicts erupted following Thursday’s decision, which might bar Sonko, President Macky Sall’s most ardent rival, from running in the election.

According to reports, at least nine individuals were murdered during the altercation between riot police and followers of opposition leader Ousmane Sonko.

On charges of raping and threatening to kill a woman who worked at a massage parlour, he was found not guilty. but found him responsible for another crime that the penal code defines as immoral conduct toward people under the age of 21.

Multiple social media and messaging services were prohibited in Senegal from late on Thursday as a result of the disturbance.
