LIttle Adama Havva Balde Diallo was crying. The four-and-a-half-year-old girl's eyes turned red due to her constant crying through the night. She loved going to school, but her school was shut down. Adama's mother, Aissatu Lamarana Diallo, was speechless that night. Her little daughter could not grasp what the Gülenist Terror Group (FETÖ) meant and why its schools were closed down. In early October 2016, the Guinean government canceled the license of La Citadelle, a school chain in Guinea linked with FETÖ. The Maarif (Education) Foundation, authorized by the Turkish state, arrived in Guinea to take over FETÖ-affiliated schools. Maarif launched preparations to run the schools.
