The Islamic Human Rights Organization (MURIC) has warned of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s military intervention plan in Niger.

This was stated by Hassan Indabawa, President of MURIC, Kano State Branch, in a statement on Saturday. MURIC’s response came after Tinubu asked the Senate to implement the ECOWAS decision in Niger.

The group said that war is not an option to solve the Niger crisis. According to Moreck, Niger and northern Nigeria have inseparable cultural ties. Therefore, the army would mean misfortune for both countries.

“Military action should never be an option to resolve the issue of changing the government in the Republic of Niger given the historical and current relationship between Niger and Nigeria, two sister neighbors in West Africa.

Relations between the two countries are based on a long shared border and common cultural and historical interactions.

Blaze Newz recalls that after the failure of ECOWAS-led diplomatic negotiations, the government of Niger severed relations with Nigeria.

Last Friday, Senate President Godeswill Akpabio read out Tinubu’s request during the plenary session calling for military intervention in Niger. However, this request has sparked mixed reactions from Nigerians.

On July 26, the military junta replaced the democratically elected government of President Mohamed Bazoum in Niger.

As a result, ECOWAS, France and the United States called for the restoration of democracy in the region.
