The military junta in the Niger Republic that carried out a coup that ousted the democratically elected President of the country, Mohamed Bazoum, has cut off ties with Nigeria and other countries.

This is coming after efforts of the Economic Community of West Africa States (ECOWAS) to resolve the ongoing impasse failed.

Days after ECOWAS issued a seven-day ultimatum for the reinstatement of President Mohamed Bazoum to avoid a possible clash with the junta, President Bola Tinubu sent a high-powered delegation to the country to meet with the coup leaders, on Thursday, August 3.

The ambassadors include Aishatou Boulamakane, Niger ambassador to the French Republic; Alad Magaskia, Niger ambassador to the Federal Republic of Nigeria; Sidi Zakari, Niger ambassador to the Togolese Republic; and Limon Tingiri Mohamadou Tiari, Niger ambassador to the United States.
