West African leaders ready for potential military intervention in Niger

Military leaders from West Africa on Friday said they stand ready for potential intervention in Niger as the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) finalizes plans to restore constitutional order in the country.

'We are ready to go anytime the order is given,' Abdel-Fatau Musah, ECOWAS commissioner for political affairs, peace, and security, said during the closing ceremony of a two-day meeting of West African army chiefs in Ghana's capital Accra.
