Dasukigate: Falana’s petition against Dasuki, Okonjo-Iweala arrives International Criminal Court

Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala

The International Criminal Court (ICC) at The Hague has confirmed that it is considering petition submitted to it by human rights lawyer Femi Falana, SAN over alleged crimes against humanity committed in the context of the arms procurement scandal.

The ICC revealed this in a letter dated 1 February 2016 with reference: OTP-CR-32/16 and signed by Mark P. Dillon, Head of Information & Evidence Unit of the ICC.

The letter reads in part: “The Office of the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court acknowledges receipt of your documents/letter. This communication has been duly entered in the Communications Register of the Office. We will give consideration to this communication, as appropriate, in accordance with the provisions of the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court.”

Mr. Falana had in a petition dated 19 January 2016 requested the ICC to “investigate allegations of crimes against humanity committed against the Nigerian people by some former and serving military as well public officials and private persons who engaged in the criminal diversion of $8 billion earmarked to procure equipment for the armed forces to fight insurgency”

The petition reads in part: “On account of the deliberate refusal of the former military authorities to equip and motivate the members of the armed forces involved in combat operations the insurgents have killed about 25,000 soldiers and civilians including children and displaced over 2,000,000 people. Having compromised the security of the people of Nigeria by collaborating with the terrorists the former military authorities deliberately encouraged the brutal killing of innocent people including ill-equipped officers and soldiers.”

“During a visit to Borno state in 2014, former President Jonathan revealed to some selected leaders of the community that it was when Alhaji Modu Ali Sheriff caused the extra judicial killing of the leader of the Boko Haram sect, Mohammed Yusuf that the group declared war on the Nigerian people. Even though President Jonathan knew that Alhaji Sheriff was a major sponsor of the terrorist group the government did not charge him to court under the Terrorism Act applicable in Nigeria.”

“In order to divert the attention of the Nigerian people and the international community from the afore mentioned crimes against humanity, scores of soldiers were put on trial before courts-martial for demanding for equipment to fight the well-armed members of the Boko Haram sect. The military courts convicted the soldiers and sentenced them to various terms of imprisonment while 70 were sentenced to death. Over 3,000 others were dismissed from the Nigerian Army in similar circumstances.”

“Having investigated and confirmed that the said soldiers were sacrificed to cover up the criminal negligence of the former military authorities the current Army leadership has ordered the recall and reinstatement of the 3,000 dismissed soldiers and commuted the death sentence of 66 out of 70 convicts on death row to 10 years’ imprisonment.”

“The inquiry conducted by the Presidential Panel on arms procurement has established that the bulk of the sum of $2.1 billion and N643 billion ($4 billion) earmarked for the purchase of military hardware to fight terrorism was criminally diverted by the former government through the office of the National Security Adviser, Col. Sambo Dasuki (rtd). It has also been confirmed that the said Col. Dasuki colluded with some serving and retired military officers and civilians to divert the sum of $2 billion and N29 billion set aside for the procurement of fighter jets and other equipment for the Nigeria Air Force.”

“As if that was not enough, the sum of $322 million and £5.5 million from the Abacha loot which was illegally transferred to Col. Dasuki by a former Finance Minister, Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala for prosecuting the war on terror has also been criminally diverted. Part of the stolen fund was used to fund the campaign for the re-election of President Goodluck Jonathan in the 2015 general elections.”

“Apart from diverting the fund for acquiring military equipment some corrupt public officers also stole money set aside for acquiring the necessary gadgets and equipment for securing the Nigerian people. For instance, the $470 million contract awarded in 2009 for the installation of CCTV cameras in Abuja, the seat of the federal government, was poorly executed due to corrupt practices. Thus, the identification of terrorists who launched bomb attacks in public places in Abuja has been frustrated by the government officials who stole the contract sum.”

“Notwithstanding the deliberate refusal of the military authorities to purchase arms and armament due to the criminal diversion of the security fund, Col. Dasuki gave a lecture at Chartam House in London on February 8, 2015 where he claimed that Nigeria had acquired adequate equipment to prosecute the war on terror. At the time he was addressing his London audience Col Dasuki was well aware that the fund for procurement of weapons had been stolen by himself and his cohorts.”

“However, out of the fear that he could be made to account for his role in the diversion of the security fund the then Chief of Defence Staff, Air Marshal Barde disclosed, while he was retiring from the service on July 30, 2015, that the armed forces led by him lacked the equipment to fight the terrorists. In his reaction to the disclosure Col. Dasuki stated sometime in August 2015 that the equipment ordered by the Jonathan Administration had not arrived the country!”

“It is submitted that the former public officials, serving and military officers as well as civilian collaborators who engaged in the criminal diversion of the security fund are liable to bear full responsibility for the death of about 25,000 people who were killed by the Boko Haram sect and the over 2,000,000 people displaced by the terrorist organisation.”

“Nigeria is a state party to the Rome Statute and deposited its instrument of ratification on 27 September 2001. The preamble to the 2003 United Nations Convention against Corruption (UNCAC), which Nigeria has also ratified states that corruption “is no longer a local matter but a transnational phenomenon that affects all societies and economies”.

“We strongly believe that allegations of corruption so far made against Col. Sambo Dasuki and other public officers have had catastrophic effects on the lives of over 25,000 Nigerian soldiers and civilians including children akin to crimes against humanity as contemplated under the Rome Statute and within the jurisdiction of the Court. The Rome Statute in article 7 defines “crime against humanity” to include “inhumane acts causing great suffering or injury,” committed in a widespread or systematic manner against a civilian population.”

“Corrupt officials in the government know well that their conduct is criminal and injurious, and that their ostentatious lives, built on a radical breach of solemn trust, aggravate their crime against humanity. We believe that these allegations of widespread and systematic corruption amount to crimes against humanity and therefore clear violations of the provisions of the Rome Statute of International Criminal Court. These allegations have given rise to individual criminal responsibility of those suspected of perpetrating corruption, as entrenched in the Rome Statute.”

“We therefore submit that this is sufficient to hold Col Dasuki and others that have been indicted in the arms theft scandal responsible for crimes against humanity perpetrated against Nigerians. The failure of a former Finance Minister, Dr Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala to prevent widespread and systematic corruption including the re-looting of the Abacha loot amounts to complicity under the Rome Statute, and therefore fits the legal requirements of a crime against humanity.”

Mr. Falana then asked the ICC Prosecutor to:

1. Urgently commence an investigation proprio motu on the allegations of the criminal diversion of the security fund of $2.1 billion and N643 billion earmarked by suspected perpetrators, with a view to determining whether these amount to crimes against humanity within the Court’s jurisdiction. In this respect, I also urge you to invite representatives of the Nigerian government to provide written or oral testimony at the seat of the Court, so that the Prosecutor is able to conclude on the basis of available information whether there is a reasonable basis for an investigation, and to submit a request to the Pre-Trial Chamber for authorization of an investigation.

2. Bring to justice those suspected to bear full responsibility for deliberate under funding of the armed forces through widespread and systematic corruption in Nigeria; and

3. Urge the Nigerian government to fulfil its obligations under the Rome Statute to cooperate with the ICC; including complying with your requests to arrest and surrender suspected perpetrators of the criminal diversion of security fund, testimony, and provide other support to the ICC.

  • Mohstone

    God will bless this lawyer. Falana i doff my hat. Carry go

  • Tafidan Dogon Daji

    Hague?With due respect Femi Falana (SAN),what bearing has ICC to do with Dasukigate (as fondly called) which everybody by now knows is a campaign fund?
    The fund in question was by inference for campaign which is by bureaucratic tradition earmarked even in the states controlled neither by PDP nor the APC.The Hague listens and adjudicates on war crimes only.The GEJ government did not commit any genocide but the Boko Haram.

    • Holy truth

      U just openly displayed ur ignorance with dis ur post. Go & acquire better knowledge, if u don’t know what amounts to war crimes, then u find out 4rm someone who can lecture u very well b4 u start dis display of ignorance.

    • God dey

      Read your law very well, please. Falana is absolutely spot on with this petition

    • Paul Young

      campaign fund with my tax money? You must be kidding me. Did i tell them i support PDP?

      • Tafidan Dogon Daji

        Whichever your party may be,my friend Paul,and whichever the state it controls,no one would seek for your permission before tax payers money shall be used for campaign.

        • Paul Young

          Very sad mistake my friend. That was in the past. Not Anymore. What happenedto the tens of billions realised from campaign donations from dangote and co? That one nor reach you wan come de de distribute our commonwealth like no mans business

        • Igwe

          Regardless of whether or not that is the case in Nigeria, It remains criminal to use state funds for personal issues…..and a re-election campaigne is a personal issue.

    • яεsιsτεя

      It’s apparently a cruel joke by a pretender!

      I had faulted Falana in a comment to his article, about failure to drag Buhari to the ICC for the Zaria massacre. So Falana in the most wicked of responses, took this bizarre twist.

      • Paul Young

        Buhari cant b blamed for what the military did in zaria. It isnt everything that he must know about before it happened. If you insist you must blame him for that then you must blame GEJ also for all the extra judicial killings of thousands of boko haram suspects many of whom we of course know are innocent. Just ask amnesty international, and then ask the USA why they imposed leahy law on Nigeria

        • яεsιsτεя

          Buhari can tell that to the ICC judges! First he has got to be dragged in to answer for that mass murder.

          • Paul Young

            Obviously you are blinded by partisan politics. I say ALL our leaders past and present are guilty of that crime. Obasanjo at odi, Yar’adua was in power when mohammed Yusuf was executed by the police/army thus giving life to boko haram insurgency. Jonathan was in power when thousands of youths were murdered by the army in borno, yobe and adamawa, and Buhari has his own in zaria. ALL of them should therefore be charged before the ICC

          • яεsιsτεя

            There’s no moral equivalence there, what Buhari did stands out as a crime against humanity, a staggering massacre of hundreds if not thousands of Nigerians, burnt and buried in mass graves! It’s a sin against God.

          • Paul Young

            Stop being a hypocrite. soldiers under GEJ not only killed suspects with guns, but actually slaughtered boko haram suspects with a knife to neck like chickens. You are a bloody hypocrite for overlooking this and only focusing on zaria. ALL of them must be investigated. If premium timew will let me post d youtube link here i will post for your perusal. otherwise just find it on youtube ‘Nigeria: Gruesome footage implicates military in war crimes’

          • Paul Young

            or search on youtube “NIGERIAN HIDDEN WAR” GENOCIDE UNDER PRESIDENT JONATHAN

          • Igwe

            Listen carefully, even if Buhari himself flew a jet and dropped a bomb on these people driving a tank to kill all of them single-handedly, as a sitting President , he has immunity from prosecution,,,same as GEJ when he was President!
            Nobody can drag Buhari anywhere. The only thing that can be done to Buhari is impeachment by the national assembly and this is currently an impossible task because the national assembly does not have enough votes to even start the process.

          • яεsιsτεя

            Saddam Hussain also had immunity, so did Kaddafy, and many despots. ..

          • Igwe

            You are now talking about an insurrection abi?,. Oya go get your gun and begin.

            You will see how Nigerians will counter all of your respective heads.

    • Igwe

      You are grossly misinformed.
      Go to the ICC website and see the current definitions of war crimes.

      NSA distributing campaign funds ? In what other country is that being done ?

  • waste of time by d Yorubas

    Sambo Dasuki (rtd) has given his side of the story on the arms procurement saga which has pitted him against the incumbent federal government led by President Muhammadu Buhari.

    In a statement on Wednesday, Dasuki insisted he was never invited to appear before an Investigative Panel on the Procurement of hardware and munitions in the armed forces.

    The full statement reads: “In a theatrical manner, the Presidency fed the public with many allegations against my person and yet to be named former public officers.

    “To draw sympathy, the presidency quoted some absurd findings including extra-budgetary interventions; award of fictitious contracts; 53 failed contracts; payment for jobs without contractual agreements; non-execution of contracts for the purchase of 4 Alpha jets, bombs and ammunition.

    “For undiscerning Nigerians, they may tend to assume that the allegations were true and pronounce the former National Security Adviser guilty as charged.

    “The statement issued by the Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina, who should know better as a former President of the Nigerian Guild of Editors and a witness to history, was nothing sort of propaganda to cast aspersions on Dasuki.

    “To set the records straight, Nigerians should appreciate that the AVM Jon Ode-led panel did not invite the ex-NSA under any guise before arriving at its ambiguous findings. At least, fairness demands that the panel ought to hear from Dasuki instead of its recourse to hasty conclusions. If the panel had been more patient and painstaking, it would have been availed of all relevant documents on some of the jaundiced findings.

    “As if acting a script, the Presidency alleged that the Panel accused Dasuki of awarding fictitious contracts between March 2012 and March 2015. Contrary to this claim, Dasuki was not the NSA in March 2012 and he could not have awarded any contract in whatever name. The ex-NSA was appointed by ex-President Goodluck Jonathan on June 22, 2012.

    “All contracts and accruing payments were with the approval of the President and Commander-In-Chief of the Armed Forces. Once the ex-President approved, the former NSA paid. So, there was due process for every purchase in line with regulations guiding arms procurement for the Armed Forces.

    “And Nigerians should note that all the services generated the types of equipment needed, sourced for suppliers most times and after consideration by the Office of the NSA, the President will approve application for payment. For sensitive sectors (military/security), there was no room for awarding fictitious contracts. The conclusions of the panel were presumptive, baseless and lacked diligence.

    “There were no fictitious contracts; contract sums were not diverted and the relevant services in writing acknowledged delivery of equipment. For all procurements, the Nigerian Army, the Air Force and the Nigerian Navy have their contractors.

    “While awaiting judicial process on these allegations, it is proper to make some references to show that the presidency was just desperate to hang some former public and military officers who served this nation at the risk of their lives.

    “It is laughable for the panel to assume that 4 Alpha jets and 12 helicopters were undelivered. In a memo to the Office of the National Security Adviser(ONSA), referenced NAF/905/D/CAS of November 28, 2014, the immediate past Chief of Air Staff, Air Chief Marshal Adesola Amosu acknowledged the receipt of the 4x Alpha jets attack aircraft and the helicopters.

    “On 10/21/14, the Chief of Air Staff also confirmed the receipt of F-7 N1 aircraft combination of 250kg bombs and accessories at $2,894,000 with the cost of freight at $1,200,000. The same Air Force confirmed getting 2xTri Shield 36DG Tactical radars

    “In another letter of December 1, 2014 signed by L.S. Alao(on behalf of the Chief of Air Staff), the Air Force said it received five containerized fuel storage and dispensing units with equipment.

    “The Nigerian Army wrote the ONSA to acknowledge the delivery of 14 armoured tanks. In a December 13, 2014 memo, the Brigade of Guards thanked ONSA for releasing N30m for RCA, Operation allowance for Troops on Op Urban Sweep II for third and fourth quarters of 2014. This is apart from the installation of CCT Cameras at the Brigade Headquarters, 2 backscatter bomb detection vans and other equipment.

    “On November 26, 2014, the immediate past Chief of Defence Staff, Air Chief Marshal Alex Badeh sought for approval of the award of one pair of uniform(in the interim) for the Armed Forces at N165, 375 to El-Jahab Mubarak Nigeria and N330,750,000 for two pairs.

    These are some of the acknowledgement letters submitted to me by the end-users(the services). It is not for me to go and find out whether the equipment were delivered or not. I am not the one keeping the inventories.

    “To show that I have nothing to hide, I submitted a comprehensive list of all requests for procurements by the services, the items bought and those equipment being awaited to His Excellency, President Muhammadu Buhari long before I left office. If there were issues, I should have been questioned. I was just the clearing house, I did not award contracts to my company or proxies. There was no contract awarded or equipment bought without approval from the then President and Commander-In-Chief. I am not a thief or treasury looter as being portrayed.

    “In order not to endanger the nation’s security, there are many salient issues and contracts which I cannot put in public domain. I am ready for trial on all these allegations in order to prove to Nigerians that I did nothing untoward in office. We will certainly meet in court.

    I have a lot to tell Nigerians but in the interim, they should not believe some of the allegations as the gospel truths. The good thing is that some of the key actors in the present administration were parts of the past process being viciously challenged.

    “As for my tenure as the nation’s NSA, I acted in the interest of the nation and with utmost fear of God. I did not use the office for any self-serving agenda. I occupied the Office of the National Security Adviser at a difficult moment in Nigerian history when terrorism was at its peak and I am leaving posterity to judge me accordingly.”

    • David.

      we do not expect him to tell us the truth, he worked with people and those people provided useful information against him neither has any of his beneficiaries denied collecting money from him. He should keep quite and burry his head in shame please.

    • Tafidan Dogon Daji

      May the Supreme and the Almighty Allah bless you and your fore fathers for the mother of all references.
      I still maintain that Dasuki is no thief but for the time being,the court of public opinion could go ahead to convict him a thousand times before the trial proper.

    • Igwe

      Sorry we did not bother to reasd your long comment and are only replying to your first paragraph.
      So please listen.

      Buhari (even though he is President of Nigeria) has no case against Dasuki. The case is between Nigerians and Dasuki!

      • Julius

        Thank u !!

  • MilitaryPolice01

    na real arrival..did he send it by canoe

  • яεsιsτεя

    What Falana got is a mere receipt.

  • яεsιsτεя

    How come there’s no outrage over the way Buhari’s administration is treating these soldiers?

    But they are also being poorly represented by Falana, who has a conflict of interest because he seeks a position from this government, so is more interested in scoring points attacking Buhari’s perceived enemies. He could be representing these soldiers pro bono, hence these hail Marys and experiments; they ssy, you get whatcha pay for.

    It’s silly to charge former administration to ICC over something that is the responsibility of the present one.

    • Paul Young

      dealing with boko haram when it was in its infancy several years ago is this administrations responsibility?

      • яεsιsτεя

        Yes.

        • Paul Young

          you must be a jester. I am not saying this administration has done much. Frankly i think the major successes recorded against boko haram were achieved prior to elections and afterwards before hand over, which means GEJ takes 90% of the credit for it. But however prior to that 6 weeks before elections handling of boko haram by GEJ was pathetic at best

          • яεsιsτεя

            Government is continous, the Blacks in USA can seek reparations for slavery today, while that crime/sin started in 16th and 17th century. The US government is still liable, it’s not just George Washington’s responsibility.

            When Buhari took over, it’s not just to ride 14 jets Junketing all over the world, or to take care of his family with more budget resources than the entirety of all Nigerian teaching hospitals combined, it’s serious work!

            Buhari’s budget is the epitome of corruption, nepotism, and rascality combined.

          • Paul Young

            All i hear is speculation. I really dont get why people like you just hate buhari so much. when we see newspaper reports about olisa metuh and co and how much they allegedly collected you people will say its media trial, now you are seeing figures bandied around about the budget many of them unsubstantiated then suddenly the media is wonderful and its good to keep talking about a matter that is currently being debated by your lawmakers. sounds like hypocrisy to me

          • яεsιsτεя

            The hypocrisy you hear is from Mohammadu’s jets to Europe.

          • Old No7

            Why waste your energy on one-tracked minded people who are hell bent on never to see anything good in Buhari even if it smacks them in the face?

          • Julius

            Has the budget approved yet ?. Its the responsibility of the National assembly to look into it, cut or added to it as they see fit. Usually, the Executive sends bloated budget knowing the Senate will cut it, if they do their job

        • Julius

          You are a moron that deserve no response. You must be out of your fckin mind !

    • Igwe

      There is no outrage because most people are not hate mongers!

    • PolyGon2013

      Get your people to cover it then. Don’t they have journalist in your domain?

      • Julius

        lolz, Gbam !!~

  • Sparzo

    This would have been much less of a gimmicky bs if this human rights lawyer have ever written to the ICC to prosecute Blair and Bush for crimes against humanity. Bet he never thought he could do that or that the Blair and Bush crimes are human rights thingi or crimes against humanity. Has ICC ever heard of Gen. Sisi of Egypt?
    The ICC lacks integrity in telling the 3rd world especially Africa and Africans ’bout crimes against humanity or judging them for it.

    • Paul Young

      That is another matter you are bringing up and frankly it isn’t half related to this issue. You do have a point that ICC is only concerned about 3rd world countries especially africa. However its not Falana’s problem petitioning bush and blair, there are human rights lawyers in the USA and UK, i am sure they have written several petitions but it will all be overlooked ofcos

      • Sparzo

        ”….. i am sure they have written several petitions but it will all be overlooked”.
        Bet Falana is unaware of that. A true African indeed.

        • Julius

          Its not being overlooked, they responded and logged it as case file.Keep being silly.

          • Sparzo

            Is that so?
            When were they logged? Has Blair and Bush been told or Served?
            ……………………………………………………………………..
            Hope you are not holding your breath clever clogs.

          • Julius

            Why do I give a fck about Bush and Blair ? You brought them up, so go and find out.

          • Sparzo

            The ICC said that I bet.
            Same will be said to Falana. Maybe not as you put it, but it all amounts to the same bs at the end of the day.

            I said to watch your language did I not? Now off you go to bed,
            Nighty night, Kiss kiss,

          • Julius

            lolz. smdh !, later alligator !

      • PolyGon2013

        If the petition would bring justice, why not?

    • Julius

      Dont be a moron. Falana is a Nigerian. As a matter of fact, some lawyers here in the U S considered doing just that about Bush.

      • Sparzo

        So you missed the point.
        There is no need to be foulmouthed.

        • Julius

          lol@foulmouthed . What point am I missing ? Why do you think I care about Bush and Blair in the first place. You are one of those folks that thinks everything is about black and white people. Im not into that sir.

          • Sparzo

            This Falana thingi. is a circus. You should know that.
            Sooner than later Iweala is going to appear before the courts in Nigeria;
            I am hoping Falana will not be taking Don Fortuna and Madueke before the ICC. They are even more culpable.

          • Julius

            Its not a circus bro. He is on a solid ground for asking ICC to look into what these people did to the country, especially to those poor soldiers they sent to fight bk on our behalf. Its a crime what they did and for the so called Finance Minister that participated in moving around the money without the approval of the NASS is not a joke. She cant claim to be so intellectual like the western world Ministers and just threw her hands up that she got the approval from the President. It is illegal, she should have refused and resign. She need to explain herself. Period. We paid her handsomely for being the minister and she failed us.

          • Sparzo

            I wonder how many of them got payed in $s or £s or shekels? Do you Know?
            Is it legal? I wonder what her contract said.

          • Julius

            Dr NOI did. Wonder no more !!. It should be illegal. If you remember, Mr Gani F , the fame memory lawyer took Obj to court for that. I think the case was never decided. Im not sure.

    • PolyGon2013

      We care about our own country. So, Falana did the right thing.

      • Sparzo

        Nigeria under Jonathan was a joke, so is Falanas circus.

        • PolyGon2013

          I hear you.

  • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

    THE CAPTION OF THIS REPORT AMOUNTS TO DECEPTION ON A MASSIVE SCALE @Premiumtimes…TAKE NOTE !!

    At no time did Falana mention NOI as a suspect because she never got a payment from any security fund. Falana stated that she approved that the Abacha loot be remitted to Dasuki . Okonjo-Iweala cannot make such recommendations on extra-budgetry funds without Presidential instruction and this has nothing to do with the ICC. Falana petition was directed at those who misused or mismanaged the funds mapped out for waging war on the insurgency .

    This caption is a disgrace to journalism as it is well calculated to convey a different meaning from the facts on the ground.

    • New Nigerian

      Without prejudice to the innocence or otherwise of The defense based on “presidential instruction” we all know is no longer tenable…ask Metuh and he will tell you so. Every public servant had to follow the rule of law…and we know NOI does, that was why she resigned from Obasanjo’s government, so whatever she did and whatever instruction she initiated, she is responsible.

      • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

        As long as the presidential directive was legitimate and in written form which I am sure it was,NOI had no rights to disobey. The funds in question was extra-budgetry therefore she had no leverage to oppose the presidency. Go to anywhere on this ,she will defeat you and other haters.

        Metuh has to prove that GEJ was responsible and the case is still in court.These are two entirely different situations.

    • Old No7

      You have proven you can read, so also you have proven you can’t assimilate

      • Igwe

        Both of you can not read!

      • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

        Ambiguous name calling with no substance. Go down to nitty-gritty if you are serious….state facts let’s see your stuff.

    • Julius

      So tell me, why is Dr NOI and her minions ranting and raving and calling Falana names ? This reminds me of Methu. Yelling amd raving before his name was even mentioned in connections to thwe arms fund sharing. Does this mean Dr NOI know something that we dont know and Falana hit a nerve ?

    • Igwe

      “The failure of a former Finance Minister, Dr Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala to
      prevent widespread and systematic corruption including the re-looting of
      the Abacha loot AMOUNTS TO COMPLICITY under the Rome Statute, and
      therefore fits the legal requirements of a crime against humanity.”

      • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

        Your assertion is not based on facts. Government works with rules,NOI does not control the presidency,she works as a technocrat .

          We assert nothing!. You said “At no time did Falana mention NOI as a suspect”.

          All we did was to copy and paste the part of the article that proves you wrong! What you read above is from the article, not from us.

            What did you copy and paste ? state the lines which translates to Falana accusing NOI of receiving any payment from Dasuki.

            You have more than enough time to waste talking to deaf dumbo supporter.

    Madam ereke ni shobu is in trouble.

    Falana hit the right cord. ICC should ride on and bring these rogues to book.

  • Igwe

    Whatever image NOI had before is now in the gutters! Watch, she will soon be fired from whatever job she has.
    No institution wants to be tainted by someone who has been referred to the ICC for crimes against humanity.

    The ICC receives thousands of letters yearly and keeps them in files….not necessarily to be investigated or acted upon.
    They received the one written by IPOB and also kept them in a file too….the acknowledged copy was online.
    Mischief makers please get a life.

    NOI, it is time to face the reality. I hope your e-rats could be of any help to you at Hague.
