The President of Judges of The International Criminal Court (ICC), the Nigerian Chile Eboe-Osuji, was received in audience at the Aso Rock Villa by President Muhammadu Buhari even as it is increasingly becoming evident that the maximum tyrant has poisoned the leader of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria.
It is not clear as yet what the duo discussed but the Nigerian government has been trying to show the World that there is nothing to fear since The ICC implicated the Nigerian security forces (NSF) under the command of Buhari last year. The ICC said that NSF have committed war crimes against humanity and needed to offer explanations.
In a report, the ICC had said it has received “a total of 169 communications” from Nigeria and its assessment has shown that security forces in Nigeria have committed war crimes varying from murder, torture, and intentionally attacking the civilian population.
“Specifically, the Office found a reasonable basis to believe that the NSF committed the war crimes of murder pursuant to article 8(2)(c)(i); torture, cruel treatment pursuant to article 8(2)(c)(i); outrages upon personal dignity pursuant to article 8(2)(c)(ii); and intentionally directing attacks against the civilian population,” The ICC had said.
The Federal Government has since become very jittery over the tremendous progress that has been made by The ICC in the issue of the Zaria massacre and the continued detention of the leader of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria, Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky.
The Buhari government is particularly worried that the International Criminal Court is unrelenting in pursuing the case and seven others against Nigeria
. It is therefore doing everything within its powers to curtail further action by The ICC, including giving a large sum of money to the body and openly supporting the emergence of Eboe-Osuji as the President of Judges of the body.
There have been serious agitations with renewed vigour for his release across Nigeria.
