Nigerian Government Defends Bokoharam Before ICC Boss

The Nigerian Attorney General AGF Abubakar Malami had while hosting the new International Criminal Court ICC President, Justice Chile Ebro-Osuji, in Abuja on Thursday, complained about the court’s investigation against Boko Haram and the Nigerian military, describing it as worrisome.

“Presently, the ICC has escalated the eight potential cases against Nigeria – six against the Boko Haram and two against the military – from the initial preliminary examination to preliminary investigation.

“This is worrisome, as Nigeria has demonstrated beyond doubt, and in absolute cooperation with the ICC, that it is willing and able and, as a matter of fact, it is indeed arresting, investigating and prosecuting anyone that commits an offence that falls within the Rome Statute of the ICC.

“The above being the case, Nigeria views the escalation of the eight potential cases as uncalled for in the circumstance,” Malami was quoted to have said.
