The Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) has warned masterminds of Sunday’s military putsch in Guinea that their action contravened its Protocol on Democracy and Good Governance, demanding immediate restoration of constitutional order in the country.

Chairman of the Authority of ECOWAS Heads of State and Government and Ghanaian President, Nana Akufo-Addo of Ghana, who gave the directive, also asked for instant and unconditional release of President Alpha Condé and others arrested by the Mamady Doumbouya-led rebels.
