NEW COUP ATTEMPT IN BURKINA FASO, BREAKING

There was a coup attempt, according to the Burkinabe junta, which overthrew the military government to take control of the country

The junta said in a statement that an attempt by some army commanders to seize control and bring about turmoil in the nation was prevented

“The evil plan to destroy the Republic’s institutions and throw our nation into disarray… Investigations will assist in identifying the plot’s organizers

According to Rimtalba Jean Emmanuel Ouedraogo, the regime’s spokesman, “Officers and other alleged actors involved in this attempt at destabilization have been arrested and others are actively sought”

The military government vowed to uncover every piece of information about this plot and expressed concern “that officers whose oath is to defend their homeland have strayed into an undertaking of this nature

“Two were claimed to be evading capture while four people were said to be in custody

According to the statement, the government began an inquiry in response to “credible allegations about a plot against state security implicating officers”

“We regret that officers whose oath is to defend their homeland have erred into a project of this nature, which seeks to obstruct the Burkinabe people’s march for sovereignty and complete liberation from the terrorist hordes trying to enslave them,” the statement reads

A rising insurgency by armed groups with ties to al Qaeda and Islamic State that has destabilized Burkina Faso and its neighbors was a contributing factor in the two military coups that took place last year, leading to the junta’s ascension to power

On September 30, 2022, Captain Ibrahim Traoré, the head of the junta, overthrew the government in the nation’s second coup in eight months.There have been seven coups in Africa since the year 2020.
