UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) – U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres is very concerned about the reported “deplorable living conditions” of Niger’s President Mohamed Bazoum and his family in arbitrary detention, a U.N. spokesperson said in a statement on Wednesday.

“The Secretary-General reiterates his concern over the health and safety of the President and his family and once again calls for his immediate, unconditional release and his reinstatement as Head of State,” the U.N. spokesperson said.
