On 26 July a group of soldiers detained President Mohamed Bazoum in the Presidential Palace and announced the suspension of the constitution and the dissolution of the government.

Kirna Kataria, International SOS’ Lead Security Analyst for West and Central Africa and Security Specialist Ope Babatunde offer insight into our decision-making processes and what could happen next.
