Posted by

In response to ECOWAS’s efforts to end the ongoing leadership issue in the Niger Republic, the country’s military junta has cut ties with Nigeria.

According to EBANTAL, ECOWAS has given the military junta seven days to bring back former president Mohamed Bazoum.

President Bola Tinubu of Nigeria dispatched a powerful delegation to the country on Thursday to meet with the coup leaders.

Niger has broken ties with Nigeria, Togo, France, and the United States, according to Daily Trust, which also adds that the team led by General Abdulsalami Abubakar (rtd) spoke solely with representatives of the junta.

The publication said that Radio France International had quoted one of the coup leaders as saying on national television, “The functions of the extraordinary and plenipotentiary ambassadors of the Republic of Niger are terminated.” The ambassadors had been dispatched to France, Nigeria, Togo, and the United States.
