Nigerian Embassy Well Guarded By Nigerien Military, Attacks Promptly Curtailed — Ambassador

Niger Republic coup

The Nigerian embassy in Niger Republic, Saturday, disclosed that protesters tried invading the facility on July 30.

The Nigerian Ambassador to Niger, Liti Auwalu, via a statement added that the Nigerien military and the police were able to repel the attack promptly.

Auwalu’s reaction stems from a social media video on Friday, that alleged the protesters had burnt down the embassy.

He furthered that the Embassy is being guarded by the Nigerien military and other security agencies to prevent attacks.

“At the moment, the Embassy is well guarded by the Nigerien Military and other security authorities.
