What is the correct way to say:
The speaker was inciting the army to coup.
The speaker was inciting the army for coup.
Or is there a better way to report.

I don't think you can use it this way, because 'coup' is a noun.
You would have to say, "The speaker was inciting the army to engage in a coup."

"The speaker was inciting the army to establish a coup."
