President Muhammadu Buhari has been dragged to the International Criminal Court over alleged killing of Pro-Biafra protesters, it has been reported.
Goran Sluiter, a lawyer at Dutch human rights legal firm Prakken d’Oliveira, filed the complaint with the International Criminal Court in The Hague on Friday.
Accusing President Buhari of war crimes, Sluiter(pictured) tells Newsweek that there has been “an intensification of violence and crimes committed against Biafrans since Mr. Buhari became the Nigerian president.”
Göran Sluiter specializes in criminal law, international law and international criminal law. His approach to cases leverages his years of experience as a deputy judge, and his academic knowledge of the subject gained in his additional role as a professor.
On Friday, a Federal High Court sitting in Abuja declined the bail request from the leader of one of the most prominent activist groups, Indigenous People of Biafra and the director of Radio Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu.
