ECOWAS Condemns Attempt to Disrupt Peace in Sierra Leone

The Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) has strongly denounced a nefarious plot by certain individuals aimed at destabilizing the peace in Sierra Leone. In a statement released on Sunday in Abuja, ECOWAS expressed profound dismay at the revelation of a scheme involving the acquisition of arms to disrupt the established peace and constitutional order in Sierra Leone.

ECOWAS unequivocally condemned this nefarious act and issued a resolute call for the apprehension and prosecution of all individuals implicated in this illegal undertaking. The regional bloc, known for its steadfast commitment to a zero-tolerance policy for unconstitutional changes of government, emphasized the importance of upholding democratic principles.

The statement reiterated ECOWAS’ dedication to supporting the Sierra Leonean government and its people in their pursuit of deepening democracy and fostering good governance. The regional body emphasized the crucial role of maintaining peace and security to facilitate socio-economic development in Sierra Leone.

In response to the imminent threat, the Sierra Leonean government has taken proactive measures, declaring a 24-hour nationwide curfew to safeguard the peace and prevent any tampering with the established order. The collective efforts of ECOWAS and the Sierra Leonean government underscore the commitment to preserving stability and advancing the democratic aspirations of the people in the region.
