Protest hits Kano over ECOWAS’ planned military intervention in Niger


Protests have hit Kano State over the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) planned deployment of a standby military force in Niger.

The protesters on Saturday embarked on a demonstration to show their displeasure at the planned military invasion of the Niger Republic.

While moving in a procession, they chanted, “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.”

They displayed Nigerian and Nigerian flags alongside placards, chanting anti-war catchphrases.

Meanwhile, the Niger junta had announced a cut of diplomatic ties with Nigeria.

Consequently, Nigeria cut the electricity supply to Niger.

It can be recalled that on 26 July, the military junta overthrew Niger’s democratically elected President, Mohamed Bazoum.
