Ousted Niger President Bazoum to be charged with high treason, junta says


The junta’s statement said Bazoum would be charged with “high treason, conspiracy to commit insurrection, and endangering the security of the state.” The statement also said that Bazoum would be held incommunicado until his trial.


Bazoum was elected president of Niger in 2021. He took office in April 2021, but his presidency was quickly challenged by a renewed wave of violence by Islamist militants. In December 2022, the Nigerien military launched a major offensive against the militants, but the fighting has continued.

The junta’s seizure of power has been condemned by the international community. The United States, the European Union, and the African Union have all called for the restoration of civilian rule in Niger.

The coup is the latest in a series of military takeovers in West Africa. In January 2022, the military seized power in Mali, and in September 2021, the military seized power in Guinea.

The coup in Niger is a setback for democracy in West Africa. It is also a reminder of the security challenges that the region faces. The Islamist militants who are operating in Niger are also active in Mali and Burkina Faso. The violence in these countries has displaced millions of people and created a humanitarian crisis.

The international community needs to do more to help the governments of West Africa to address the security challenges that they face. The coup in Niger shows that the situation is only getting worse.
