Niger Republic junta has deployed military personnels to its border with one of its neighbouring countries, Benin.
It was confirmed by a video posted by a counter-insurgency expert and security analyst in Lake Chad, Zagazola Makama, on Monday.
Makama disclosed this via his official X page (formerly known as Twitter), stating that the military junta in Niger has deployed personnel to the Benin border amidst a possible ECOWAS invasion.
“Niger deploys Military to the Niger- Beninese Border amidst eminent military intervention plans of ECOWAS,” he wrote.
It was reported on 10th of August that the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) directed the deployment of the sub-regional Standby Force as part of its resolution to bring back democracy and restore constitutional order in the Niger Republic.
Despite the failure of all attempts to dialogue, the ECOWAS is yet to invade Niger Republic.
