Nigeria: Biafran lawyer files complaint with ICC on crimes against humanity. International Business Times (IBT)
A lawyer from the Amesterdam-based Prakken d’Oliveira law firm has filed a complaint with the International
Criminal Court (ICC) on alleged human right abuses against pro-Biafrans in south-eastern Nigeria. Göran Sluiter, who specialises in international criminal law, told IBTimes UK that his team interviewed dozens of people who had been victim of alleged abuses committed by the Nigerian government, including murder, unlawful imprisonment, torture and enforced disappearance.
The complaint follows claims that since President Muhammadu Buhari came to power in 2015, violence against pro-Biafrans has allegedly intensified.
