We're ready for the ICC trial - IPOB

26 April 2016, 10:31

Abuja - The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has reacted to a case filed with the International Criminal Court (ICC) against their leader Nnamdi Kanu, saying that they are ready for the challenge.

According to Naij, Kanu has been dragged to the ICC by civil activist Albert Ella, who claims that Kanu and IPOB committed heinous crimes linked to mass graves discovered by security operatives in Abia State.

IPOB has, however, looked at Ella's petition as a good omen, stating that they welcome his attempt to justify the continual detention of their leader.

“We are praying fervently that this news is actually true and not just a fiction. We, IPOB, wholeheartedly welcome this attempt to justify the continued illegal detention of our leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu by purportedly charging him to ICC.

“We have instructed our lawyers in Amsterdam to convey our willingness to stand trial as well as seek the ICC to prioritize the allegation,” said the group's spokespeople, Dr. Clifford Iroanya and Emma Mmezu.

Ella's complaint follows a statement made by the Department of State Services, claiming that members of IPOB had killed and buried 55 people in a shallow grave in the Isuikwuato LGA of Abia State.

Ella has claimed that the alleged victims deserve justice from the ICC as soon as possible.
