Ecowas warns of possible breakup as Burkina Faso, Mali, and Niger officially leave the bloc to form their own union.

The military leaders of these countries, in power since coups from 2020 to 2023, have decided to part ways with Ecowas, prompting concerns about regional stability and security.

Ecowas fears this move could disrupt travel and security cooperation across West Africa, especially in combating jihadist threats.

Efforts are underway to mediate the crisis, but tensions remain high as these nations pivot away from Western influence towards new partnerships, including with Russia.
