Nigeria's President Muhammadu Buhari, Attorney General of the Federation, AGF, and Minister of Justice of Nigeria, Abubakar Malami and Justice Binta Nyako of an Abuja Federal High Court have been charged before the International Criminal Court.
Bruce Fein, the United States counsel of Nnamdi Kanu, pro-Biafra agitator filed a criminal complaint with the International Criminal Court, ICC, against the individuals over their treatment of Kanu.
He charged Malami and Nyako with conspiring with President Muhammadu Buhari and Kenyan President, Uhuru Kenyatta, “to commit crimes against humanity”.
In a tweet on Thursday, Fein wrote: “Today, I filed a criminal complaint with the International Court of Justice against Nigerian Attorney General Malami and Federal High Court Justice Nyako charging them with conspiring with Nigerian President Buhari and Kenyan President Kenyatta to commit crimes against humanity.”
Kanu is expected to appear before Justice Nyako on Friday for charges bordering on terrorism.
After spending two years in detention, Kanu disappeared in April 2017 while on bail. His followers blamed the Nigerian authorities, but he mysteriously surfaced in Israel more than a year later.
Last June, Kanu was arrested in Kenya and repatriated to Nigeria.
