Niger Junta Orders Security Agents to Expel French Ambassador

The Military junta in Niger has revoked the diplomatic immunity of France’s ambassador and ordered police to expel him from the West African country, according to a statement from the military regime.

France will continue to denounce the coup and defend Mohamed Bazoum, the democratically elected president of Niger, according to French President Emmanuel Macron.

The junta claims it would restore constitutional government in Niger within three years, but ECOWAS disagrees with this timetable.

The regional grouping has sent a “standby” military to Niger and instructed it to return to civilian government.

Although the force has not yet entered the nation, ECOWAS stated that it will not remain outside for too long.

Although the junta has installed a new government, it is unclear whether it will be able to bring back stability to the nation.

The French ambassador’s departure is another indication of the escalating hostilities between the junta and France. We still don’t know how this will turn out in the upcoming months.
