His arrival on a flight from Ghana’s capital, Accra, was preceded by a heavy police presence.

Charles Blé Goudé was acquitted in March last year of crimes against Humanity by the International Criminal Court based in The Hague.

Blé Goudé was arrested in Ghana in 2013 following the post-electoral crisis that engulfed the west African country in 2010.

Former president Laurent Gbagbo refused to concede defeat to current president Alassane Ouattara.

The post electoral violence resulted in at least 3,000 deaths.
