Prosecute Buhari and Emefiele group tells ICC

    Published By:

    A sociopolitical group, the Centre for Human Rights and Anti-Corruption Crusade, has urged ICC to prosecute Muhammadu Buhari, and CBN Governor Godwin Emefiele, over alleged “crime against humanity”.

    The petition dated June 4, 2023 and signed by the Chairman, Board of Trustees of CHURAC, Cleric Ebikonbowei Alaowei, Esq., was made available to journalists in Warri, Delta State on Sunday.

    The group urged the International Criminal Court in The Hague, Netherlands, “to immediately carry out an investigation of the duo of former President Muhammadu Buhari of Nigeria and the Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Mr Godwin Emefiele, and prosecute them if found wanting over policy they initiated and implemented when they were in government in Nigeria.

    “The former president further declared on November 10, 2022 that there’s no going back on the redesign of naira notes in spite of the apparent and identified demerits in the Policy, it means the CBN governor and former president Buhari deliberately initiated this policy to inflict an untold hardship on Nigerians just because of their interest in the general elections”.

    CHURAC’s petition to ICC read, “The action of the duo of Mr Godwin Emefiele and former President Buhari has flagrantly violated the fundamental rights of Nigerians entrenched in international laws. The act constituted crime against humanity as provided under Article 7 of the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court. We, therefore, request you to carry out a holistic investigation of the crime in order to try them once they’re found culpable.

    “Many Nigerians are still suffering and yet to recover from the adverse effects of the inimical currency swap policy. Even hospitals recorded so many deaths because people could not have access to their monies in the banks to fund treatments.

    “If your office intervenes in this matter, it will serve as deterrence to other leaders of nations from the member countries from trampling on the rights of their nationals in initiating policies.

    “We’re ready to provide all necessary information for the investigation and possible prosecution of the culprits”.
