    The leaders of Mali and Burkina Faso warned NATO strongly not to dare attempt to replicate what it did in Libya in Niger because there would be far more serious repercussions than they can think earlier today, immediately after the calls. The warning came from Niamey, the capital of Niger. “We will not accept the repetition of NATO adventure in Libya in our region,” they declared in a news release. Period!” The Nigerien capital, Niamey, is said to have been virtually entirely marked in combat readiness by Wagner PMC troops at the same time. As the waiting game begins, hundreds more Wagner volunteers are said to have arrived in Niger in the last 24 hours, increasing their force strength there.

    The fear of an invasion by the Economic Community of West African States has led to significant evidence that members of the Niger junta have started to move their families to Dubai and Burkina Faso.

    The practice apparently took place a few days ago at the nation’s Agadez Airport and involved Gulfstream G550 aircraft.

    According to a source connected with the movement, all of the putschists’ families were evacuated during the night of August 11th to August 12th, 2023, by the Nigerien junta, which was commanded by General Tchiani. Indeed, multiple Gulfstream G550-type aircraft with women and children on board, including flight BFY824R, departed Agadez Airport for Burkina Faso and Dubai.
