The Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) has instructed its standby force to reinstate constitutional order in the Niger Republic.
Omar Alieu Touray, the President of ECOWAS, made the declaration while reading the resolution of ECOWAS on the Niger coup at the ECOWAS Extraordinary meeting in Abuja on Thursday.
It also called on the African Union, AU, partner countries, and institutions to support the resolution taken by the sub-regional body.
According to ECOWAS, coup leaders have resolutely rejected all attempts to negotiate with the military junta in the Niger Republic and have condemned the ongoing detention of President Mohamed Bazoum and his family.
In part, the resolution says, “Direct the committee of the Chief of Defence Staff to activate the ECOWAS standby force with all its members immediately.
To reinstate constitutional order in the Republic of Niger, “ordain the deployment of the ECOWAS stand-by force.”
