Niger military deploys forces at Beninese border against ECOWAS invasion

Amidst imminent military intervention by the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), Niger Republic’s coupists have started deploying military personnel along its border with Benin, one of its neighbouring countries.

The development was disclosed by a counter-insurgency expert and security analyst in Lake Chad, Zagazola Makama.

According reports, ECOWAS had threatened a possible military action against the junta who seized power in Niger and suspended the constitution.

Last month, ECOWAS ordered its standby force to restore constitutional order in the Republic of Niger.

This is one of its resolutions reached in a 12-point communique issued after its Second Extraordinary Summit on August 10. However, the ECOWAS is yet to invade Niger Republic despite all attempts to dialogue failed.

Makama on his social media platform X, on Monday, posted a video that showed Niger’s military were deploying at Beninese border in preparation against the military intervention by the ECOWAS.
