The military leaders who took control in Niamey on July 26th have issued a 48-hour ultimatum for the French ambassador to depart Niger, as announced by the country’s foreign affairs minister on Friday.

Faced with “the refusal of the French ambassador in Niamey to respond to an invitation” from the minister for a meeting Friday and “other actions of the French government contrary to the interests of Niger”, the authorities have decided to withdraw their approval of Sylvain Itte and ask him to depart within 48 hours, the statement said.

The coup leaders have openly discussed their ties with France.

Niger has accused French forces of releasing captured “terrorists” and violating its airspace, alleging an intent to destabilize the nation.

“We are witnessing a real plan of destabilisation of our country, orchestrated by French forces,” Abdramane said.

ECOWAS has responded by imposing substantial economic sanctions on Niger after the coup and has threatened to employ military force to reinstate constitutional governance.

France maintains approximately 1,500 troops stationed in Niger, primarily to assist in the fight against jihadist groups that have long plagued both Niger and the broader Sahel region.
