BREAKING: West African Defence Chiefs Continue Talks On Possible Niger Intervention

West African defence chiefs are presently engaged in a second day of discussions in Ghana, deliberating the potential need for a military intervention to reinstate civilian governance in Niger Republic if diplomatic attempts to overturn a coup prove unsuccessful.

According to Al Jazeera, the defence chiefs are expected to announce any next steps at a closing ceremony at 4pm.

Troops of the Economic Community of West African States a day earlier pledged readiness to participate in a standby force that would restore democracy in Niger after generals toppled and detained President Mohamed Bazoum.

All member states, except those under military rule and Cape Verde, agreed at a meeting in Accra, Ghana’s capital, on Thursday to activate a “standby force” as a last resort to restore democracy in Niger.

ECOWAS defence chiefs are having a two-day meeting in the Ghanaian capital, Accra, to fine-tune details of a potential military operation to restore Bazoum if continuing negotiations with coup leaders fail.
