ECOWAS plans virtual summit on Guinea crisis


The Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) is set to hold a virtual summit on Wednesday to discuss the crisis in Guinea, where troops have arrested President Alpha Conde and declared a political transition.

On Sunday, a group of elite troops arrested 83-year-old Conde, scrapping the constitution and imposing a curfew in the country.

ECOWAS in reaction condemned the coup and demanded Conde’s unconditional release.

According to the Commission’s communications director, Sandra Oulate, the group will hold a virtual extraordinary summit of member states to discuss the crisis rocking Guinea.

A statement confirming the meeting on an ECOWAS social media account said the meeting would be at 2pm on Wednesday.
