The Niger Republic under the regime of Gen. Abdourahmane Tchiani has cut off ties with Nigeria after attempts by the Economic Community of West Africa States (ECOWAS) to negotiate a return to civilian rule failed.
President Bola Tinubu, on Thursday, sent a high-powered delegation to the country to meet with the coup leaders.
This followed a seven-day ultimatum issued by ECOWAS for the reinstatement of President Mohamed Bazoum to avoid a possible clash with the junta.
The delegation led by General Abdulsalami Abubakar (rtd) only met with representatives of the junta.
Subsequently, Niger severed ties with Nigeria, Togo, France, its colonizer, and the United States.
