Following the recent Lekki massacre and other inhumane treatments and brutalities of security men during the #EndSARS protests across the country, Chief Prosecutor of International Criminal Court, Fatou Bensouda, said few days ago that they have been paying a close eye on developments in Nigeria.
“My office has been closely following the events around the current protests in Nigeria and the reaction of Nigeria’s law enforcement and security agencies,” Bensouda said in a tweet.
“Any loss of life or injury is concerning. We have received information alleging crimes and are keeping a close eye on developments, in case violence escalates and any indications arise on that Rome Statute crimes may have been committed,” she added.
Although Lagos State governor, Babjide Sanwo-Olu, and army have denied any shooting and fatality from the attack on the unarmed protesters, but there have been series of palpable evidences in footages, facts and figures from both the accounts of eyewitnesses of the massacre and Amnesty International that several people were killed during the confrontations.
This action is said to have attracted global outrage against Nigerian government.
