How We Foiled Mohamed Bazoum’s Attempt To Escape From Custody – Niger Military Junta

Mohamed Bazoum

Niger’s military rulers said they had foiled an attempt by Mohamed Bazoum, the former president they ousted in a coup in July, to escape their custody on Thursday.

“At around three in the morning, the ousted president Mohamed Bazoum and his family, his two cooks and two security elements, tried to escape from his place of detention,” the regime’s spokesman Amadou Abdramane said on state television.

The escape bid failed and “the main actors and some of the accomplices” were arrested, he added in the broadcast late Thursday.

An investigation has also been launched.
