    Background: General Gowon - in his capacity as current chairman of the Organisation of African Unity (OAU) - received an urgent note from Senegal on Saturday (September 22), two days after Senegal had threatened to break-off diplomatic relations with her neighbouring state of Guines.

    The Senegalese Minister of Justice, Mr. Cledor Sall, delivered the note to the Nigerian Head of State at the Dodan barracks, Lagos. He would not disclose its contents but said that he had a message from President Senghor about a matter which urgently concerned the Organisation of African Unity (OAU). Informed diplomatic sources say that the message is connected with charges by Guinea that Senegal was involved in a recent plot overthrow Guinea's President Sekou Toure. Senegal has denied the charges and threatened to break-off diplomatic relations.
