In a startling revelation this evening, General Abdourahamane Tchiani, the leader of the coup plotters in #Niger, made a concerning statement that has sent shockwaves through the nation and the international community.
According to General Tchiani, the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) is set to declare war on their group within a week.
This declaration comes in response to the recent coup attempt that has heightened tensions in the region.
ECOWAS, a regional organization committed to promoting peace and stability in West Africa, has been closely monitoring the situation in Niger and has expressed its strong condemnation of the attempted overthrow of the government.
In an apparent move to bolster their position, General Tchiani revealed that they are expecting to receive heavy weapons from their Russian allies. This revelation adds a new layer of complexity to the crisis, potentially escalating the conflict and further straining diplomatic efforts to resolve the situation peacefully.
Moreover, General Tchiani issued a stern warning to those individuals who may be collaborating with ECOWAS or the government they attempted to overthrow, declaring them as enemies. This raises concerns about potential internal divisions and the risk of further violence within the country.
