Chad’s main opposition candidate Saleh Kebzabo has thrown in the towel in the country’s presidential election.

The elections are expected to take place on April 11.

BBC reported that Kebzabo accused the country’s sitting president, Idriss Déby, of using scare tactics against his political rivals.

Déby rose to power through a military coup in 1990 and is serving his fifth presidential tenure.
