Burkina Faso and Mali, on Monday, warned against military intervention in their coup-hit neighbour, Niger, saying it would be tantamount to war in the West African region.


Blaze fm reports that the warning which was conveyed in a joint statement by the two countries which are both ruled by military-backed governments, followed a threat by West African Leaders.


Recall that the leadership of the Economic Community of West African States, ECOWAS, had during its emergency meeting in Abuja, Nigeria, threatened military action against Niger’s junta after the successful coup last week.

In the meeting, which was chaired by its Chairman, President Bola Tinubu, ECOWAS gave the junta seven days ultimatum to reinstate President Mohamed Bazoum, who is being held captive or face sanctions.
