He gave himself up to the revolutionaries in the early hours of Monday after they seized control of Tajura, an eastern suburb of the capital, Tripoli, the Doha-based news channel of Al-Jazeera reported on the Tweeter.
Muhammad Gaddafi was in charge of the main internet provider service for Libya and cut the country loose from the cyber world immediately after the beginning of a revolution against Gaddafi’s regime in February.
There are also reports that the dictator’s security guards have joined the forces.
Libya has been the scene of intense fighting between government troops and opposition forces since a revolution seeking to topple Gaddafi began in mid-February.
Libya’s former Prime Minister Abdessalam Jalloud, who defected from Gaddafi’s regime on Friday, has said that it was too late for the authoritarian ruler to strike a deal to quit power and that he would probably be killed.
“I think it would be difficult for Gaddafi to give himself up…I don’t think the evolution of the situation in Tripoli will allow him to survive,” he said.
The regime would fall in less than 10 days, said the former official, who was among the officers, who helped Gaddafi wrest power in a coup in 1969, but fell out of favor with the ruler in the nineties.
