Guinea-Bissau: Buhari receives ‘graphic details’ on attempted coup

Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari on Sunday got a comprehensive briefing on the coup attempt to oust President Umaru Sissoco Embalo of Guinea-Bissau.

The attempted coup was, however, aborted by loyalist forces.

Buhari was briefed on the sidelines of the African Union Summit of Heads of State and Government held in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

A statement by Buhari’s spokesman, Femi Adesina, said the President met with Senior Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs of Guinea-Bissau, Suzi Barbosa, “who gave a graphic presentation of the attempt to overthrow the constitutional order in her country.”

“They attempted to kill President Embalo. They destroyed the presidential palace with bazookas, killed 11 young people. It took about five hours to restore order. It was a nightmare,” she said.

President Buhari pledged to consult with other ECOWAS leaders on how full normalcy could be restored to the embattled country in the shortest possible time.
