Coming to power by a coup d'état in 1983, Thomas Sankara was killed by a commando on October 15, 1987 at the age of 37, during the putsch that brought to power his comrade in arms Blaise Compaoré .

Arrest warrant against Blaise Compaoré

The death of Sankara, who became a Pan-African figure and nicknamed the "African Che", was a taboo subject during the 27 years in power of Blaise Compaoré, overthrown by a popular uprising in October 2014. The legal case was revived under the democratic transition and an arrest warrant was issued against him by a Burkinabé court on March 7, 2016. Blaise Compaoré lives in Côte d'Ivoire where he obtained Ivorian nationality and as such cannot be extradited.

In addition to the latter, his former chief of staff, General Gilbert Diendéré, sentenced for the putsch of September 2015, and 23 other people, mostly soldiers of the former presidential guard of Blaise Compaoré, are being prosecuted for "attack on the security of the State", "assassination", "forgery in public writing" and "concealment of corpses".

In February, a first reconstruction of the assassination of Thomas Sankara took place at the scene of the crime at the headquarters of the National Revolutionary Council (CNR).

In 2017 during a visit to Burkina, French President Emmanuel Macron promised that all French documents concerning the assassination of Sankara would be "declassified". According to lawyers for the Sankara family, "a large batch of these documents have been transmitted to the Burkinabè justice", which has not communicated their content.
