According to the Erem News website, Omar participated in a protest last week against the transitional government, which violates his prohibition of taking part in political activity. The ban was imparted on him after the collapse of Omar al-Bashir’s government last year.

Video circulated on social media shows Omar being escorted to a car among chants and jeers.
