Coup d'Etat

From Wikipedia ('%C3%A9tat)
“A coup d'État (pronounced /ku de'ta/), or simply coup, is the sudden overthrow of a government, often through illegal means by a part of the state establishment — mostly replacing just the high-level figures. It is also an example of political engineering. It may or may not be violent in nature. It is different from a revolution, which is staged by a larger group and radically changes the political system through unconstitutional means.”

Can the establishment of CANA (Convocation of Anglicans in North America) within the geographical jurisdiction of The Episcopal Church and the consecration of Martyn Minns by “His Grace The Most Reverend Peter Jasper Akinola CON, DD Archbishop Metropolitan And Primate of All Nigeria (Anglican Communion) and President of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN)”, be seen as anything less that an attempted coup?
