Many Security Officers Killed As Coup Hits Guinea-Bissau

Reports from Guinea-Bissau indicated that several security officers have been left dead in an attempted coup in Guinea-Bissau.

This has garnered a series of reactions from social media users especially Africans as they believe the rate of coups on the continent is becoming very alarming.

The development was made known in a recent post made by the Africa Facts Zone on the popular micro-blogging platform, Twitter.

The post reads;

“There has been a coup attempt in Guinea-Bissau. Many security officers were killed. The gunmen carried out the shooting outside the building, where President Umaro Embaló was presiding over a cabinet meeting. ECOWAS has condemned it. UN and AU have expressed concern over it.”

Although the success of the coup didn’t materialize, this is actually the second time that a situation like this has happened in West Africa as a coup happened in Burkina Faso a few days ago.
