Abuja - The All Progressives Congress (APC) has threatened to drag President Goodluck Jonathan to the International Criminal Court (ICC), at The Hague, reports Vanguard.

This follows the massive terror unleashed on the residents of Lagos on Monday by armed pro-Jonathan groups under the cover of a faction of the Oodua People’s Congress (OPC).

The OPC was demanding the sack of Professor Attahiru Jega, National Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
