According to Central African media reports, the Central African government announced on social media on January 25 local time that the Central African Republic government forces, together with its allies
launched an offensive against armed groups trying to use force to blockade the Central African capital Bangui in the village of Boali, about 90 kilometers (56 miles) from the capital.
In the exchange of fire, about 44 people were killed and 3 were captured, while there were no casualties on the part of the Central African government forces.
It is understood that armed groups in Central Africa have launched frequent attacks before and after the Central African elections and threatened to blockade the Central African capital Bangui in an attempt to overthrow the regime of Central African President Tuwadra, who has been re-elected.
The presidential palace of the Central African Republic declared a 15-day state of emergency from midnight that day to quell the violence of armed groups.
