The Sudanese military leader who took power in a bloody coup has said he is keeping the deposed prime minister detained at the general’s personal residence “for his own safety”, as concerns mount over the wellbeing of senior arrested officials.

The prime minister, Abdalla Hamdok, and other ministers have not been seen since their detention and there have been international demands for their immediate release. They were seized by security forces loyal to general Abdel Fattah al-Burhan early on Monday and remain missing.

On Tuesday Hamdok’s office, in a message on its official Facebook page, called for people to take to the streets and conduct acts of civil disobedience, as it voiced concern over his safety and that of the other missing ministers.

Burhan denied that the army takeover amounted to a coup and said Hamdok was being kept at the general’s house “for his own safety” but was in good health and would be allowed to return to his own home later in the day.
