#EndSARS: International Criminal Court Opens Investigation into Nigerian Army Shooting of Protesters in Lekki

The International Criminal Court has launched a preliminary investigation into the recent #EndSARS protests in Nigeria.

In a statement, the ICC prosecutor’s office previously claimed to have received information about the alleged crimes.

According to the BBC, the review “will assess whether the legal criteria for initiating an investigation under the Rome Statute have been met.”

For weeks, crowds of peaceful protesters gathered in the streets of major cities in Nigeria to protest police brutality, which led to the rout.

Human rights group Amnesty International said security forces opened fire on protesters, resulting in several deaths and injuries.

Both the police and the military have denied Amnesty’s allegations.

The ICC has announced that it will publish the results of the preliminary examination.
