Emir Sanusi meets Niger coup leaders on peace mission

Former Emir of Kano, Alhaji Muhammadu Sanusi has met with the head of the junta in Niger,  Abdulraman Taini in Niger in efforts to deepen consultation and find a truce after the July 26 coup provoked widespread condemnation.

The former Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria on Wednesday met the military leadership after the junta aborted a meeting with representatives of African Union, AU, Economic Community of West Africa States, ECOWAS, and a top US diplomat.

A delegation raised by ECOWAS could not broker peace with the military rulers as they declined a meeting.

Pictures of Sanusi, whose Tijjaniya sect has a large following in Niger, went into circulation.

Credible News gathered that the coup leaders took time to listen to the requests of the Emir, who is the Khalifa of the sect in West Africa, among which was for them to give a window of amicable resolutions to the problems.

The meeting mainly focused on the way out of the quagmire in the country.

Credible News reports that ECOWAS leaders are scheduled to meet on Thursday for the next line of actions after the seven-day deadline given to the junta elapsed
