Conde, 83, was re-elected for a third term in an election marred by violence in October 2020.

His arrest was announced just hours after heavy gunfire was heard around the presidential palace in Guinea’s capital Conakry on Sunday morning.

The situation is still unclear, as Conde’s government previously stated that a special forces attack on the presidential palace had been “repelled.”

According to the report, soldiers were seen driving at high speeds through the capital near the presidential palace, urging residents to stay at home.
