Guinea ALERT: Supporters of presidential candidate attack radio station

A group of persons believed to be supporters of Cellou Dalein Diallo attacked and vandalized the premises of Sabari FM, a privately-owned radio station in the north of Conakry, the capital of Guinea.

Sanou Kerfalla Cissé, who confirmed the attack, said the unidentified assailants hurled stones at the station and injured a journalist and also destroyed the glass window on the building.

The attack came after the Independent Electoral Commission (CENI) had declared Diallo’s opponent, Alpha Condé, as the winner of the second round of the presidential election held.

The angry supporters accused the station of contributing to the defeat of their candidate by doing propaganda for Alpha Condé.
