Niger’s Junta Ready To Prosecute Ousted President Bazoum

Niger’s coup leaders said late Sunday that they are ready to “prosecute” ousted Nigerien President Mohamed Bazoum for “high treason” and “undermining the security” of the country.

Junta spokesman Colonel Amadou Abdramane, speaking on state television, said the military regime had “gathered the necessary evidence to prosecute before the competent national and international authorities the ousted president and his local and foreign accomplices for high treason and for undermining the internal and external security of Niger.”

Hours earlier, Niger’s junta leaders said they were open to negotiations to avert conflict with West Africa’s regional bloc ECOWAS, according to a group of senior Nigerian Islamic scholars who met with the military insurgents in Niamey.
