Niger: The alleged perpetrator of the March 31 coup attempt arrested in Benin

Captain Sani Gourouza was therefore arrested in Benin and handed over to the Nigerien authorities. He is the alleged perpetrator of the coup attempt that rocked Niamey on the night of March 30 to 31, the day before the inauguration of new President Mohammed Bazoum. The information is officially confirmed by the Nigerien police and gendarmerie who had issued an arrest warrant against him.

It is the end of a run for Captain Sani Gourouza, the alleged leader of the put schists, of Niamey air base 101, cited in the foiled coup attempt against the regime of Mahamadou Issoufou, on the night of March 30 to 31 , two days before the inauguration of the new president Mohamed Bazoum. This Monday, he was arrested by the Beninese services and returned to Niamey.

A week ago, exactly on April 20, a lieutenant and an adjutant were also arrested in Benin and transferred to Niamey. Cooperation welcomed by the hierarchy of the Nigerien research brigade after an arrest warrant issued against the captain and his men involved in the coup.

After the failure of this attempt and in his last message to the nation, President Mahamadou Issoufou, condemned this action. The same was true for the new president Mohamed Bazoum on the day of his inauguration. Both had declared that the perpetrators and their accomplices will be sought and brought to justice .

The opposition then declared that this coup attempt was a coup staged by the Niamey regime to promote itself. We remember that the advance of Captain Gourouza’s men had been stopped at the height of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs which shares a wall with the presidential palace. The deluge of fire from the elements of the presidential guard, for a quarter of an hour, it is said, had scared the attackers, some of whom are still in the wild.
