MAIDUGURI, Nigeria (AA) - Military chiefs from the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) will meet in Ghana to discuss a possible military intervention in Niger, an official said.

Amos Lungu, a spokesperson for the 15-nation Western African bloc, told Anadolu that the meeting would be held in Accra on Thursday and Friday.

Last month, Gen. Abdourahamane Tchiani, the former commander of Niger's presidential guard, declared himself the head of a transitional government after President Mohamed Bazoum was ousted by a military intervention on July 26.

ECOWAS leaders last week ordered to activate its standby force in order to "restore constitutional order" in Niger.
