The Federal Government has refuted recent social media assertions suggesting that the military junta in Niger Republic obstructed President Bola Tinubu’s aircraft from accessing its airspace.
Social media channels circulated a report alleging that the Nigerien military junta had issued threats to an aircraft carrying President Tinubu as he returned from his trip to New York, United States. According to these claims, the committee had ordered the plane to leave Niger’s airspace.
Furthermore, the report implied that the president’s aircraft had been pursued upon exiting the West African nation, potentially facing the risk of being targeted.
Analyzing the Allegations and Denial Surrounding President Tinubu’s Recent Flight
The report also suggested that the junta’s perceived hostility was related to President Tinubu’s role as the chair of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) in addressing the recent coup within Niger.
As the situation unfolds, the Federal Government has officially contradicted these social media reports, emphasizing the importance of verifying information from credible sources in a world where misinformation can quickly gain traction. The government maintains that President Tinubu’s flight transpired without any such incident in Niger’s airspace.
