Niger’s military regime accuses France of preparing ‘attack’

The coup d’états who have seized power in Niger blame her France that it is “developing its forces” in several West African countries, with the intention of launching an attack on the country.

“France continues to deploy its forces in several ECOWAS/CEDEAO countries in preparation for an attack on Niger, which it is planning in cooperation with this organization”especially “in Côte d’Ivoire, Senegal and Benin”, claimed Major General Amadou Abdaraman, a top official of the military regime, in a statement read on state television yesterday Saturday.

After Mali and Burkina Faso, Niger at the end of July became the third country in the Sahel – a region faced with repeated attacks by jihadist organizations that pledge allegiance to al-Qaeda or the Islamic State – to experience a military coup since 2020.
