Coup: Nigerian military will capture Niger in 13 hours – El-Rufai’s son
Bashir, the son of former Governor of Kaduna State, Nasir El-Rufai, has claimed that the Nigerian military is capable of capturing the capital of the Niger Republic, Niamey, in 13 hours.
Quoting a video shared by a Twitter user praising the army of the Niger Republic, El-Rufai said he doesn’t pray for war but hopes the Nigerian military will showcase their might and capture Niger in less than 13 hours.
“Look at the soldiers Tinubu want to go and fight with Nigerian soldiers,” the Twitter user with the handle @chimaobi_nteoma said.
El-Rufai reacted: “God forbid war, but only because of stupid videos like this do I hope the Nigerian Military showcases their might in Niger and captures Niamey in 13 hours.”
The Daily Post reported that the military junta in the Niger Republic severed ties with Nigeria after the efforts of the Economic Community of West African States, ECOWAS, to reinstate ousted President Mohamed Bazoum failed.
Consequently, Nigeria’s president and the Chairman of the Economic Community of West African States, Bola Tinubu, wrote to the Senate, seeking its support for military intervention against the military junta in the Niger Republic.
