Following the ultimatum given to the military junta in Niger, the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), under the leadership of President Bola Tinubu, has imposed another sanction over the coup in the Republic.

Recall that the regional bloc earlier issued seven days ultimatum to the military junta in the Niger Republic to reinstate the overthrown President Mohamed Bazoum or face sanctions, adding that the use of force would not be ruled out of the option

But the coup plotters, in their reactions, vowed to resist the bluff of ECOWAS and any other foreign influence on the country.

Following their forced takeover of the democratic government, the coup plotter cut the diplomatic relationship between Nigeria, France, the US and Togo, and shut down the country’s airspace indefinitely.
