In Guinea, the former Minister and Adviser to Alpha Condé Tibou Kamara was arrested on the night of 19 to 20 September before being released on Sunday afternoon.
as reported from Conakry, Mouctar Bah
Tibou Kamara was arrested overnight from Saturday to Sunday at his home in central Conakry by armed men in uniform who took him to an unknown destination without giving any explanation, according to one of his relatives. A second group of ten men then returned to search his room and took various items, including phones from his entourage, according to the same source.
Tibou Kamara was released in the afternoon. A few hours later, the CNRD confirmed the arrest in a statement read at the end of the day on public television. The former minister and adviser to Alpha Condé is accused of violating the commitments of neutrality towards the new power.
In a few lines, the CNRD reminds in its press release that members of the outgoing government must refrain from any measures or communications that are likely to disrupt the new established order.
According to the CNRD, in this sense, “a commitment has been made by former Prime Minister Ibrahima Kassory Fofana on behalf of all members of his government.” “It follows the obvious and repeated breach of this commitment that former Minister Tibou Kamara was arrested and heard,” the junta said, without specifying what it was accused of, but stating that “several items related to this violation have been seized.”
Finally, in its press release, the CNRD, which says it does justice to its compass, assured the Guineans that no witch hunt will be conducted against anyone.
