Guinea Alerte de sécurité

Security forces utilize tear gas to disperse youth protesters in Kolaboui (Boke) on September 18; avoid all demonstrations

TIMEFRAME expected from 18/9/2020, 12h00 until 19/9/2020, 11h59 (Africa/Conakry). COUNTRY/REGION Kolaboui

Event

Security forces utilized tear gas to disperse protesting youths in the town of Kolaboui in Boke Prefecture on Friday, September 18. The group had reportedly gathered to demonstrate against power outages in the town when security forces forcibly dispersed them as they were blocking roads. Inadequate electricity generation capacity has, in recent months, led to continued blackouts as the town's power generators have been failing due to lack of maintenance causing increasing social tensions.

Heightened security measures as well as transport disruptions are likely to continue throughout the day. Further protests over the issue are possible in the coming days and weeks.

Advice

Those in the area are advised to monitor developments, avoid all protests and demonstrations, anticipate localized disruptions to transportation and business operations, and adhere to instructions issued by local authorities.
