Northern Elders Forum Threatens To Drag Lieutenant General Ihejirika To ICC For Extra Judicial Killings

The Northern Elders Forum has threatened to drag the immediate past Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant General Azubuike Ihejirika, and some other top military officers to the International Criminal Court in The Hague for alleged extra-judicial killings.

The forum in a communique signed by its spokesman, Professor Ango Abdullahi, after its meeting in Kaduna, accused Lieutenant General IHEJIRIKA and six others of alleged extra-judicial killings and strangulation of civilians by soldiers in Bama and Giwa Barracks in Borno State, using an underground detention centre.

Professor Abdullahi said the forum had earlier set up two investigative committees to probe the use of soldiers against civilians in Bama and some parts of Borno State.  

He said the report of the two committees would be harmonised at the forum’s emergency meeting in Abuja on Wednesday the twenty second of January, for further action
