Baring last minutes change of plans Nigerian troops will be crossing the borders of neighboring Niger republic in matter of days or weeks to restore Democratic rule in the country, 9News Nigeria has learnt.

Already diplomatic efforts by the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) to negotiate a return to civilian rule in the country has crumbled as the General Abdourahmane Tchiani regime has cut off ties with Nigeria over it’s role in the sub-regional intervention.

President Bola Tinubu had sent a high-powered delegation to the country to meet with the coup leaders, on Thursday.

The delegation, led by General Abdulsalam Abubakar, only met with representatives of the junta.

Also, the Niger junta announced a termination of the military agreements and protocols signed with France and announced the end of functions for Niger’s ambassadors to France, the United States, Togo and neighboring Nigeria, which is leading ECOWAS’ efforts on dialogue.

“The functions of the extraordinary and plenipotentiary ambassadors of the Republic of Niger” to France, Nigeria, Togo and the United States are terminated,” General Abdourahmane said.

“All aggression or attempt at aggression against the state of Niger will see an immediate response and without warning,” he vowed.

Radio France International quoted the General’s Spokesperson, Colonel Major Amadou Abdramane during a national broadcast on Thursday.

Earlier, ECOWAS led by President Bola Ahmed Tinubu of Nigeria had issued a seven-day ultimatum for the reinstatement of President Mohamed Bazoum to avoid a possible use of force against the junta.

Mr Bazoum, in a plea published in a Washington Post opinion piece, said: “I write this as a hostage and urge the US and partners to help.”

President Tinubu on Thursday sent a letter to Nigeria’s Senate requesting legislative approval for military invention in the neighboring country.

Meanwhile, European countries have started the evacuation of their nationals in Niger, as Mali, Burkina Faso and Guinea expressed support for the coup.

The military took over power in Niger Republic late July after armed troops blockaded the presidential palace in Niamey and detained President Bazoum.
