The authorities in Guinea have cordoned off the home of one of the leaders of the opposition National Front for the Defence of the Constitution, the party has said. The FNDC says in a Facebook post that the access to the home of its national coordinator, Abdourahamane Sano, has been closed off by the police. This, BBC Africa reports that, comes ahead of planned protests today against President Alpha Conde’s bid for a third term in October’s election. The FNDC, an alliance of civil society groups and opposition parties, has rejected Conde’s candidacy and vowed that the protests will take place despite a government ban.
