This Facebook post with a video purportedly of Wagner mercenaries flying into Niger is FALSE.

The post reads in part: “BREAKING: Video Footage LEAKED barely an hour ago is presumably the landing of the Il-76 military transport aircraft in Niger, purportedly carrying Wagner PMC fighters. Authorities in Niger have officially confirmed the presence of Wagner fighters in the country.”

The document adds: “There are also reports that French soldiers in a part of the country have not yet left the country despite being ordered to leave by the new administration. One report has it that the French are waiting to see if ECOWAS makes a move so they can ride on that to intervene. Others say their exit from Niger will be forced in a few days time, as it was in Mali & Burkina Faso. Reports are still very sketchy at this time. More updates as events unfold.”
