Coup: ECOWAS to restore order in Niger, says Tinubu

The Economic Community of West African States, on Wednesday, said it would deploy “all means necessary” to restore constitutional order in the Republic of Niger amid coup fears.

This formed the outcome of a closed-door meeting between Nigeria’s President, Bola Tinubu, who also serves as Chairman of the ECOWAS Authority of Heads of State and Government and his Beninois counterpart, Patrice Talon, at the Aso Rock Presidential Villa, Abuja.

“Talon is here to review and consult on the issues with our neighbour. And the military misbehaviours and that is what he’s here for. He’s going there now. He’s on his way to the Niger Republic,” Tinubu told State House Correspondents.
