Revealed: Guinea Coup Plotters Were Undergoing Army Training In The US

An elite special forces unit in Guinea, headed by 41-year-old Col. Mamady Doumdouya overthrew President Alpha Conde from office and thereby suddenly terminated the country’s democratic administration on Sunday, September 5.

However, Colonel Doumbouya and his gang of coup plotters are familiar to the United States (US)’s military.

New York Times and Daily Mail have disclosed that the young and able-bodied soldier who proclaimed himself as Guniea’s new commander was at the time leading the said unit of troops who were under training by the US’ Green Berest since July.

Today Post gathered that this was why the foreign instructors, clearly humiliated by the actions of the trainees, drove to the American embassy in the capital and immediately canceled the program even while the coup was underway.
