Abuja: A coup of soldiers has overthrown the Nigerian Government. Addressing the country via national TV, a group of soldiers led by Colonel-Major Amadou Abdramane have announced they have dissolved the constitutions moments after Nigerian President Mohamed Bazoum was reportedly seized by members of the presidential guard.

"We, the defence and security forces... have decided to put an end to the regime you know. This follows the continuing deterioration of the security situation, and poor economic and social governance," stated the Colonel during his televised address to the Western African Country.

The Nigerian constitution stands dissolved, all institutions have been suspended and borders of the country have also been closed. The Colonel-Major further added that all day-to-day business will be taken care of by the ministers in charge.

Furthermore, a night curfew has been imposed in Nigeria from 10 PM to 5 AM local time until notified otherwise. Defending the coup, Abdramane announced that the soldiers are acting in interest for the National Council for the Safeguard of the Homeland.

In his address to the country, he also shared that "external partners should not interfere".

Following the Coup, United States has expressed his concern. US Secretary of State Antony Blinken expressed his "unwavering support" for the President in a phone call. President Bazoum is a key ally for the West in the fight against Islamist militancy in West Africa.

United Nations, UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres stated that he has spoken to the Nigerian President and has offered the UN's full support to him. The Economic Community of West African States, ECOWAS has also condemned this coup.

“ECOWAS condemns in the strongest terms the attempt to seize power by force and calls on the coup plotters to free the democratically-elected President of the Republic immediately and without any condition,” stated the bloc in an official statement.
