Niger: Son Of Deposed President Released On Bail Amidst Political Turmoil

Salem Bazoum, the son of Niger’s ousted President Mohamed Bazoum, who was overthrown in a coup last year, has been provisionally released on bail, as confirmed by a Niamey military tribunal.

The 22-year-old had been held in custody along with his parents since the military coup took place on July 26, 2023.

According to a court document, Salem Bazoum has been granted “provisional release,” with the condition that he responds to justice whenever required.

While Bazoum’s parents remain in custody at the presidential residence, the release of their son marks a development in the ongoing political turmoil in Niger.

A source close to the deposed president revealed that Salem Bazoum has left Niamey for Lome, the capital of Togo, where he arrived on Monday evening.

The Togolese government issued a statement confirming Bazoum’s release, indicating that a deal was reached after mediation from Togo and Sierra Leone.
