ECOWAS Considers Military Action With Niger Coupists, Demands President’s Reinstatement

The Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) has issued a seven-day ultimatum to the military junta in the Republic of Niger to reinstate President Mohamed Bazoum as democratically elected President or face a range of stiff sanctions.

The resolution was reached at an Extraordinary Session of the Authority of Heads of State and Government of the ECOWAS, which held  yesterday at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

The regional body also tasked all Chiefs of Defense Staff of the member-states to proceed for an emergency meeting to strategize on effective ways to implement a possible military operation to restore constitutional order to office.

It also threatened to impose land border closures and no-fly zone conditions on Niger Republic should the military coup masterminds fail to heed its ultimatum.

General Abdourahmane Tchiani, also known as Omar Tchiani, and the chief of Niger’s presidential guard, declared himself leader while the country’s elected president, Mohamed Bazoum, has been held by the military since the coup took place last week.
