Niger Republic junta didn’t plan to shoot down Tinubu’s plane – Nigerian Embassy

By Seun Opejobi

The Nigerian Embassy in Niger Republic has denied reports of the military junta’s plot to prevent President Bola Tinubu’s jet from using the country’s airspace.

This was disclosed by a former aide to ex-President Muhammadu Buhari, Bashir Ahmad.

Ahmad tweeted: “The Embassy of Nigeria in Niger Republic has denied the fake reports that the military junta prohibited President Bola Tinubu’s jet from flying in its airspace.”

It was reported that the military junta had redirected the presidential jet conveying Tinubu to leave Niger Republic’s airspace.

The presidential jet conveying Tinubu was said to have risked being shot down from the country’s airspace.

The junta’s action was not unconnected to Tinubu and the Economic Community of West African State, ECOWAS, stance against the recent coup.

The military had ousted former President Bazoum over the mismanagement of the country’s resources in a coup.
