‘Don’t interfere’, Niger coup plotters send strong warning to Tinubu, UN

Despite the warning given by the ECOWAS chairperson, President Bola Tinubu, against the illegal removal of the democratically elected government of Niger Republic, the country’s coup plotters have warned against any foreign intervention.

Recall that a group of soldiers who appeared on the country’s national television Wednesday night, hours after the President of Niger Mohamed Bazoum was held in the presidential palace, declared that his government had been ousted from power.

Colonel Amadou Abdramane, in a statement said defence and security forces had decided to “put an end to the regime that you know due to the deteriorating security situation and bad governance.”
