ICC acknowledges receipt of petition against Buratai: Group

The International Criminal Court (ICC) has acknowledged the receipt of petition urging it to probe and prosecute Tukur Buratai, immediate past Chief of Army Staff.

Deji Adeyanju, convener of the civil society organization Concerned Nigerians on Tuesday said the Hague-based court wrote the group to confirm receipt of the petition forwarded to it last week.

Mr Adeyanju also said he and his group will not rest until the ex-military chief whom they accused of commiting crime against humanity and human rights violations is made to pay for the consequences of his actions while in office.

“The International Criminal Court has written back to us on our petition against Buratai. I can tell you we are making progress. We will not rest until he faces justice at The Hague,” the activist said on Twitter Tuesday evening.

Meanwhile, the federal government has described those demanding the probe of Buratai as unpatriotic elements.
