There is wild jubilation in Guinea’s capital Conakry following a military takeover in the West African country.

Scores of citizens in videos circulating on social media are seen in a happy mood.

According to them, they are happy to have what they describe as a welcoming change.

“We are happy. We are here to show our joy because we have suffered a lot over time. Over time, God showed us someone who is more powerful done him,” a jubilant citizen told journalists in Conakry.

Guinea capital Conakry woke up to heavy gunfire on Sunday Sept. 5. The fighting was mostly around the main administrative district of Kaloum where the presidential palace is located.

By mid-afternoon, videos began circulating on various social media platforms, showing President Alpha Conde in the company of special forces soldiers.

The head of the army unit Colonel Mamady Doumbouya, later appeared on state television stating that “poverty and endemic corruption” had driven his forces to remove Conde from office.
