The headquarters of the main opposition party in Chad, is being demolished, two days after its leader Yaya Dillo was killed.

A large excavator was seen demolishing the three-story building and heavily armed soldiers cordoned off the area with armoured vehicles.

Earlier, the Socialist Party Without Borders (PSF) said Dillo was executed by soldiers who shot him a point blank range.

The military junta said he was killed during an exchange of gunfire after staging an attack on the country’s security agency. He denied any links to the alleged attack.

Dillo was buried by his family on Thursday.

There remains a large military presence on the streets of the capital, N’Djamena.

The shooting came amid tensions ahead of elections announced for May.
