The 14th Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Lamido Sanusi, has met with the coup leaders in Niger Republic.

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

Recall that Nigerien authorities turned down a meeting request by ECOWAS and the US delegation based on ECOWAS sanction ordering member states to shut their border with Niger on Monday.
