According to Daily Trust, this is on the heels of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) decision to deploy its standby military forces in Niger.
In a viral video sighted by Legit.ng on Saturday, August 12, hundreds of protesters flooded Kano’s streets, wielding the Nigerian, Nigerian and French flags in solidarity against the planned military invasion.
The protesters were heard chanting:
“Nigeriens are our brothers, Nigeriens are also our family.
“Niger is ours, we don’t want war, war against Niger is injustice, a plot by the western forces.”
This followed an intense call from different quarters, especially Northerners who believe that Nigeriens are neighbours with whom they share things in common.
