Ibrahim Traore Biography
Ibrahim Traoré (born c. 1988) is a Burkinabé military officer who is the interim leader of Burkina Faso since the 30 September 2022 coup d’état which ousted President Paul-Henri Sandaogo Damiba.
Early Life and Education
Ibrahim Traoré was born around 1988. He studied at the University of Ouagadougou where he was part of the Association of Muslim Students.
Ibrahim Traore Career
He joined the army of Burkina Faso in 2010, and was promoted to captain in 2020.
His association with the “Cobra” special forces, a counterterrorist unit founded in 2019, is disputed.
According to several sources such as BBC, Al Jazeera, and Die Tageszeitung, he was part of the unit.
However, news magazine Jeune Afrique stated that he was not associated with the “Cobras”, and instead served in an artillery regiment.
Traoré was part of the group of army officers that supported the January 2022 Burkina Faso coup d’état and brought the Patriotic Movement for Safeguard and Restoration military junta to power.
He served as head of a military unit in Kaya, a town in Burkina Faso’s north, either as part of the “Cobras” or an artillery unit.
He was one of many younger officers who fought against the rebels at the frontlines during the jihadist insurgency in Burkina Faso.
Many supporters of the January coup became dissatisfied with the performance of Paul-Henri Sandaogo Damiba, the junta’s leader, regarding his inability to contain the jihadist insurgency.
Traore later claimed that he and other officers had tried to get Damiba to “refocus” on the rebellion, but eventually opted to overthrow him as “his ambitions were diverting away from what we set out to do”. In addition, there were delays in pay for the “Cobra” troops.
When the plotters launched their coup on 30 September, Traore held the rank of Captain and was 34 years old. The operation was carried out with support of the “Cobra” unit.
Traore declared himself the new head of the Patriotic Movement for Safeguard and Restoration.
