Likely coup in Guinea as soldiers detain President Conde



Special Forces reportedly seized power in Guinea on Sunday after detaining President Alpha Conde..

The soldiers announced the dissolution of the country’s institutions but the Defense Ministry insists the attack on the presidency was repelled.

A video of the armed personnel claiming authority is circulating on social media.

“We have decided after having taken the president, who is currently with us…to dissolve the current constitution, to dissolve the institutions.

“We have also decided to dissolve the government and the closure of land and air borders”, one of the coup plotters declared.

However, a statement by the Defence Ministry said “the insurgents spread fear” in Conakry before arriving at the presidential palace.

It added the guard, defense and security forces, loyalists and republicans contained the threat.
