ACCRA, Sept. 17 (Xinhua) -- Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, president of Ghana and current chairman of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), led a high-powered delegation to Conakry early Friday to confer with the leaders of the new military administration in Guinea, a source at the Ghanaian presidency told Xinhua.

The visit came a day after the subregional bloc slapped sanctions on the leaders of the coup that detained the Guinean President Alpha Conde.

A communique issued after the one-day extraordinary ECOWAS summit held in Accra Thursday demanded the military leaders for a swift return to constitutional rule.

The 15-member body also urged the African Union and other international partners to help enforce the travel bans and the freezing of financial assets of the coup leaders, members of the National Committee for Reconciliation and Development, and their relatives.
