IPOB: ICC examines petitions against Buhari, others

The International Criminal Court has declared it’s intention to examine petitions brought against Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari and some other officials if his government over the killings of members of the Independent Peoples of Biafra by the military.

ICC made the declaration in a letter to a Nigerian journalist, Ahaoma Kanu, in which it stated that it would examine his petition together with others already under consideration on the same matter.

Kanu had petitioned the international body over last year’s killings of hundreds of IPOB members by the armed forces and other security agents in different parts of the South-East.

It’s leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, as well as his father, Eze Israel Kanu, and some other members of their family have been missing since the invasion of their country home in Afaraukwu Ibeku Umuahia, Abia State by security agents in September 2017.
