Zidan said that some of Libya's many armed militias want to turn the country into 'another Afghanistan or Somalia'.
According to the Guardian, in his media conference, Zidan explained his abduction this week as one in which a hundred vehicles came with heavy and medium weapons, and said that it was a coup against legitimacy.
Zidan demanded an 'explanation' from the group, which identified itself as from the 'Revolutionaries' Operation Room', and denounced the armed group for using 'guns and bombs' to 'terrorise' the government.
Giving his first account of his ordeal, Zidan said that he faced men who claimed to be revolutionaries, demanding things and came with their weapons and bombs and different threatening methods but he refused to do anything.
He further revealed that the militias had attacked and abused diplomats living in the Corinthian hotel while searching for him.
Editor of the English language Libya Herald, Michel Cousins said that it is clearly a conspiracy adding that the coup failed because of an unexpectedly strong show of support for a prime minister who was until this week regarded as weak and ineffectual, the report added.
