Idris was mastered in 1990
Idris Debbie Itno, former commander-in-chief of the Chadian army, came to power in 1990. Rebel forces under his leadership then overthrew then-president Hisne Heber.

During his tenure, the rebel parties made several attempts to carry out a coup, but each time he succeeded in saving his power.
America has ordered its diplomats to leave Chad
The US State Department has ordered non-essential diplomats working at the US Embassy in Chad to leave the African country for fear of an attack in Enzamina. The United States has also asked the families of American forces stationed there to leave the country, as armed groups appear to be heading towards Enzamina, the capital of Chad.
America released travel consultation
The ministry issued a travel advisory stating that nongovernmental armed groups from northern Chad are heading south and appear to be heading towards Enzamina. He said non-essential U.S. government personnel had been asked to leave Chad via commercial flights due to the proximity (to armed groups) of Enzamina and the possibility of violence in the city.
