The Economic Communicty of West African States (ECOWAS) has said it has noted with great concern the recent political developments which occurred in Conakry, Republic of Guinea.

ECOWAS in a communique on Sunday condemned “with the greatest firmness this coup attempt on Sunday, September 5, 2021.”

“ECOWAS demands respect for the physical integrity of the President of the Republic, the Professor Alpha Condé and his immediate and unconditional release as well as that of all the personalities arrested.

“It also demands the return to constitutional order on pain of sanctions. ECOWAS reaffirms its disapproval of any unconstitutional political change.

Soldiers appeared on national TV in Guinea claiming to have dissolved the government of President Alpha Condé.

However, the defence ministry said the attempted takeover had been thwarted by the presidential guard.

This follows hours of heavy gunfire near the presidential palace in the capital, Conakry.
