NIGER COUP: Niger Military Junta cuts off ties With Nigeria, France, Others

Military junta in Niger Republic, on Friday, cut off ties with Nigeria, France, and some other countries too.

This followed the failure of the peace talks with delegates sent by the Economic Community of West Africa States (ECOWAS).

Radio France International, on Friday reported that the “delegation from the ECOWAS arrived in Niamey, with the aim of establishing a dialogue with the junta in order to obtain the return to constitutional order. The first contacts on site were positive.

“But at the end of the evening, the CNSP spoke through the voice of Colonel-Major Amadou Abdramane, the same who spoke on July 26, when the soldiers announced that they had overthrown President Mohamed Bazoum.

It also entailed that, “The putschists also decided to put “an end to the functions of the extraordinary and plenipotentiary ambassadors of the Republic of Niger” from four countries: France and the United States, two allies of President Bazoum, Nigeria, whose President Bola Tinubu is also at the head of ECOWAS and which imposed sanctions against Niger – suspension of financial and commercial transactions, freezing of the assets of putschists, cut in electricity supply… –, and Togo”
