In a statement released on Friday, Niger’s foreign ministry stated that “in reaction to Nigerian Ambassador Mohamed Usman’s refusal to reply to an invitation by the ministry for a discussion on Friday, August 25 at 11.30 a.m., and due to other actions of the Nigerian government contrary to Niger’s interests, the ministry is giving Mr. Mohamed Usman 48 hours to leave the Nigerien territory.”
