I am ready to stand trial in Hague – Nnamdi Kanu Breaks Silence.
Leader of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra, IPOB, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, has declared his readiness to stand trial at the International Criminal Court, ICC, in Hague, if defending Biafrans against unprovoked genocidal attacks by killer herdsmen and terrorists would warrant his appearance at the ICC.
Kanu who made the declaration on a live broadcast on Radio Biafra Sunday night, regretted that harassments and extrajudicial killings by security agencies have continued unabated across Biafra land.
The IPOB Leader said that the world had maintained criminal silence over the plight of Biafrans despite complaints and petitions by IPOB as well as indicting reports against the Nigerian Authorities and security agencies by some reputable global agencies including the UN reportuer on human rights and Amnesty International.
