Group Requests Court Order To Arrest Sudanese President
A group known as Nigerian Coalition for the International Criminal Court, (NCICC) has filed a suit at the Federal High Court Abuja in order to compel President Goodluck Jonathan to arrest the President of Sudan, Omar al-Bashir, who is currently attending a conference in Abuja.
According to NCICC Steering Committee’s chairman Chino Obiagwu at a news conference in Abuja said the Nigeria’s diplomatic reputation will further deteriorate if the Jonathan administration fails to arrest the indicted Sudanese leader.
“It will amount to grave diplomatic blunder for the Jonathan administration to invite and give full ceremonial reception to war crime indictee in disregard of millions of victims and family of Darfur atrocities: stated Mr Obiagwu, adding that some of the Darfur victims are “Nigerian citizens who are still crying for justice.”
At the moment, Bashir is attending an AU health Summit, Al-Bashir arrived Nigeria on Sunday where he was treated to a red carpet reception with full military honours.
