The former Emir of Kano Lamido Sanusi has met with coup leaders in Niger Republic.
The former Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) meeting is coming after the junta aborted a meeting with representatives of African Union (AU), Economic Community of West Africa States (ECOWAS) and a top US diplomat.
A delegation raised by ECOWAS could not broker peace with the military rulers as they declined a meeting.
A video of Sanusi meeting with the coup leader Abdourahmane Tiani, went viral on Wednesday.
Sanusi met the Junta leaders in company of the Sultan of Damagaran.
