Former President Goodluck Jonathan on Tuesday visited Aso Rock Villa where he again met with President Muhamadu Buhari.

Sources say the visit may not have been unconnected to the rumoured coup attempt in Mali.

President Jonathan was appointed Special Envoy to mediate in the crisis that has plagued the country.

Reports say gunfire was heard at Kati military camp near Bamako.

Shots were heard Tuesday morning at the Kati military camp, near Bamako.

The situation in Bamako remains confusing.

According to several corroborating sources, gunfire was heard at Kati’s “Soundiata” military camp, 15 km north of Bamako.

Armed men in pick-up trucks burst into the camp. Shots were exchanged with military present at the site.

“Heavily armed pick-u

p trucks from Bamako entered Soundiata camp and the men on board fired into the air. There was retaliation from the soldiers present, who thought it was an attack,” a Malian officer told The Africa Report/Jeune Afrique, speaking on condition of anonymity.

Government workers in the nearby capital of Bamako are evacuating.

“Arrests are being made of officials. It’s total confusion,” an officer at Mali’s Ministry of Internal Security, told journalists.
