Three members of an opposition group, including its national coordinator Fonike Mangue, also known as Oumar Sylla, have been detained by Conakry authorities.

The arrests of the opposition members occurred on Tuesday during a news conference organised at the coalition’s headquarters with a goal of restoring constitutional order.

The National Front for the Defense of the Constitution (FNDC), which recently vowed to stage a protest against the military coup that ousted former president Alpha Condé, is being led by Colonel Mamady Doumbouya.

Speaking after the arrests, the coalition vowed to continue to fight for democracy.

The FNDC is a sentinel of democracy, we have decided to fight for a return to constitutional order”, said Ibrahima Diallo, FNDC operations officer.

Abdoulaye Oumou Sow, member of the FNDC, added “now that we see that we are no longer in a rule of law, there is no longer an open door for dialogue, we see that we are in a dictatorship, we are going to fight this fight and this fight is going to be led by the people of Guinea. And we call for the people to remain in action until Guinea becomes a virtuous democratic country.”

The FNDC coalition organized a multi-month campaign of mobilisation against the ousted president Alpha Condé in September.

Colonel Mamady Doumbouya, the leader of the military junta, has promised to cede control to elected citizens within three years.
