BREAKING: ONGOING COUP IN NIGER AS PRESIDENT MOHAMED BAZOUM IS DETAINED BY HIS OWN GUARDS.

Niger President Mohamed Bazoum is being detained by members of the Presidential Guard, who have been given an “ultimatum” by the army, a source close to Bazoum said on Wednesday.

According to a source close to Niger President Mohamed Bazoum, members of the Presidential Guard are holding Bazoum after giving them a “ultimatum” by the army.

After negotiations fell down, irate guard men “refused to release the president,” the source said, adding: “The army has given them an ultimatum.” They also blocked access to the president’s home and offices.
