The United States Embassy in Niamey honors the memory of the fallen and expresses its deepest condolences to their families, friends, and communities.
The United States remains committed to supporting and training Nigerien security and defense forces through our security partnership that is based on common strategic goals and shared values.
This year we will launch a new publicity campaign seeking information that will bring those responsible for the Tongo Tongo ambush to justice.
This campaign includes billboards posted in the Niamey and Tillaberi regions advertising the following information.
The US government’s Rewards for Justice program is offering a reward of up to $5 million (CFA 3.4 billion) for information on the 2017 Tongo Tongo attack.
