Activist drags Nnamdi Kanu to ICC

24 April 2016, 19:51

Abuja - The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has allegedly been dragged to the International Criminal Court (ICC) over mass graves discovered in Abia State.

According to Naij, Albert Ella, a civil rights activist, filed a criminal complaint with the ICC against Kanu and IPOB after accusing them of committing heinous crimes against Nigerians.

The development follows a statement released by the Department of State Security (DSS) accusing the Biafran group of killing and burying over fifty people in a shallow grave in the Isuikwuato LGA of Abia State.

Ella's complaint, which has since been acknowledged by Leigh Swigart, claims that the victims deserve immediate justice, with the ICC being urged to open an investigation and prosecute Kanu and other members of IPOB following the unwillingness of Nigerian courts to try them.

Wolfgang Bendler, a legal practitioner based in Germany, is set to work full time on the case as international head of a legal team assisted by Ella's lawyer, Edward Omaga.
