Nikyo or Ikkyo or something Else?

In Wikipedia's aikido page there is an image of an aikidoka wearing a hakama applying a technique to another.

The technique is labeled as ``nikyo omote''.

I've seen very little aikido, but being a jujutska, nikyo looked to be executed like a kote mawashi basically making the radius and ulna touch like coiling a helix tighter.

In the picture, It looks like pressure is being applied on the shoulder side of the elbow, and the forearm technique (looks like kote hineri) is used more to expose the elbow.

Is it Nikyo or Ikkyo or something else?

Thanks for the answer in advance,
