The Sudanese military announced Thursday it had removed President Omar al-Bashir from power after months of expanding protests.
Military council head Ibn Auf was for years a key figure in al-Bashir's regime. The protestors say Bashir has simply been replaced by members of his inner circle, which does not reflect the change they want.
The U.S. placed him under sanctions in 2007 for his role in the conflict in Sudan's western Darfur region, where he liaised between the government and the Janjaweed, a militia notorious for its attacks on civilians.
Mr Bashir is the subject of two global arrest warrants issued by the worldwide Criminal Court (ICC), which accuses him of organising war crimes and crimes against humanity in Sudan's Darfur region between 2003 and 2008.
Gosh has also been implicated in crimes in Darfur but is also reviled by protesters because his NISS forces have been responsible for much of the force used on protesters since the anti-Bashir movement began in December, as well as numerous arrests. "This is the main concern now for most of the Sudanese people, how to meet their minimum needs for the families", said Hajji. As part of this it is imposing a three-month state of emergency, with the constitution suspended. "We guarantee the new government will be run by the civilians without the military", he said. Organizers said they would keep up the campaign and that they disagree with the army's plans to rule the country for the next two years.
The group encouraged continued protests at the army's headquarters in Khartoum and military posts around the country "until state power is reinstated to a civilian transitional government that represents the forces of the revolution". "We are not greedy for power".
The statement came shortly after a press conference on Friday in Khartoum by the country's new military rulers.
"Things are actually escalating further", she said.

Rob Westcott, senior propulsion engineer at Nammo, said: "We've never used an engine in this kind of application before". The prize was eventually scrapped, but the three young engineers chose to continue developing the spacecraft.
"We are used to hearing government double-speak but we need to see if they're really interested in dialogue and listening to the voices of the people".
Since returning to Khartoum from self-imposed exile, Mahdi has allied his party with the grass-roots who were the driving force behind the mass protests that preceded Thursday's coup. New demonstrations broke out Thursday afternoon in the capital, Khartoum.
The 75-year-old al-Bashir is in custody, Zein Abedeen said, but declined to provide more details or say where the president of 30 years is being held.
What is the reaction overseas?
World powers, including the United States and Britain, said they supported a peaceful and democratic transition sooner than two years.

In Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, the chairperson of the African Union Commission, Moussa Faki Mahamat, said "the military takeover is not the appropriate response to the challenges facing Sudan".
Russia, which twice hosted Mr Bashir despite the worldwide travel ban he faced, called for calm.
