Nigerian government has condemned the coup d’etat in Burkina Faso, calling for the immediate release of President Marc Christian Kabore and other members of his government being detained by the military.

The Nigerian government also demanded for the immediate return to the status quo ante.

A statement on Monday by the spokesperson of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Mrs. Francisca Omayuli read:
“The Federal Government of Nigeria has received with grave concern, reports of a coup d’état in the Republic of Burkina Faso.

“Nigeria strongly condemns the overthrow of the democratically elected government of President Roch Marc Kabore and his detention.

“This unfortunate development not only subverts the constitutional order of the country, but also seeks to further destabilise the peace efforts in the ECOWAS sub-region.

“This unconstitutional change of government is unacceptable. Nigeria, therefore, calls for the immediate release of President Marc Christian Kabore and other members of his government being detained, as well as an immediate return to the status quo ante.”
