American Lawyers Announce Collection of Evidence to Prosecute Nigeria’s President Buhari and Lt. General Buratai in the International Criminal Court for Genocide and Crimes Against Humanity

WASHINGTON, D.C.– On behalf of Biafrans who covet justice—the dead, the living, and those yet to be born—the law firm of Fein & DelValle PLLC is drafting a criminal indictment against Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari and Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant General Tukur Yusuf Buratai, for genocide and crimes against humanity under the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court.

Buhari and Buratai are criminally culpable because of their command responsibility for security forces operating under their direction or control and who are terrorizing tens of millions of Biafrans specifically because of their Christianity and ethnicity. The crimes include extrajudicial killings, torture, and sister unspeakable horrors. They are the grisly signature of Buhari’s and Buratai’s ongoing military campaign in the South East region with the euphemistic moniker “Operation Python Dance II.

The indictment being drafted by Fein & DelValle will be presented to Chief Prosecutor of the ICC, Fatou Bensouda. It will be modelled after the genocide or crimes against humanity indictments returned against Serbia’s Slobodan Milosevic, Sudan’s Omar Bashir, Libya’s Muammar Gaddafi, Chad’s Hissen Habre, and Cambodia’s Comrade Duch.

The overwhelming majority of Biafrans cannot speak for themselves without risking lethal retaliation by President Buhari or Lt. General Buratai. That fear explains the reason the United States District Court for the District of Columbia granted the motion of Fein & DelValle to reference their ten (10) Biafran plaintiffs anonymously in their Torture Victims Protection Act suit against sixteen (16) individual Nigerian defendants in Doe, et al. v. Buratai, et al., Civil Action No. 1:17-cv-0133.

Fein & Delvalle are gathering photographic, video, and testimonial evidence of the ongoing genocide and crimes against humanity perpetrated by Buhari and Buratai against Igbos not only in the South East region but also in northern Nigeria and elsewhere. There is no safe haven in Nigeria for them. Last June, Hausa Fulani youths in northern Nigeria (AREWA) with impunity threated to evict eleven million Igbos from their homes and businesses in northern Nigeria by force and violence if they did not quit the area by October 1, 2017.

Mr Fein stated: “We are confident that 50 million Igbos in Nigeria were not born with saddles on their backs ready to be ridden by booted and spurred Hausa-Fulani with the grace of God. Criminal prosecutions of Buhari and Buratai before the International Criminal Court are the best way of teaching that gospel.”

Mr Fein and Mr DelValle voiced optimism that the prosecutions of Buhari and Buratai will prompt the United Nations Security Council to task the United Nations Electoral Unit to conduct a referendum on Biafran independence in the South East region; and, to operate a transitional government for a six-month period prior to the balloting to avoid any intimidation of the voters. It is no accident that South Sudan achieved independence on the heels of President Bashir’s ICC indictment for genocide in Darfur.

Nigeria’s current borders were drawn by a racist British colonial master more than a century ago with no reference to the inhabitants. The boundaries are moral, legal, and politically indefensible. The Government of Nigeria does not reflect popular will on that score. It rules under a 1999 Constitution that was decreed by a military dictator for the purpose, among other things, of holding Igbos in bondage to Hausa-Fulani terrorists.

Britain defaulted on its decolonization obligation to permit self-determination referenda by each of the separate and distinct peoples of Nigeria. United Nations General Assembly Resolution 1514, Dec. 14, 1960, provides:
“All peoples have the right to self-determination; by virtue of that right they freely determine their political status and freely pursue their economic, social and cultural development.”

    This is a welcome idea, but what is the position of NIGRR DELTANS? there is no way we can be separated from our fellow christian brothers and sisters from Igbo land or Biafra land. All what the hausafulani govt have been doing since 1914 and up to 1956, has always been on how to divide us and rule over us, to weaken our political unity and strength, the UN must work out a model on how the totality of the former Eastern Regions, including Niger delt regions will exist, free from hausafulani islamic terrorists or jihadists influences. Because of our rich oil and gas resources, the lazy parasitic hausafulani islamic immigrant race, are playing games with our future, which they said we must not be allowed to have control over it but we, the youth are more wiser, though our forefathers may have played the roll of the fools, in 19q4 and 1960s, however, in this 21st century, we want to be liberated from economic slavery and political bondage . Another issue nigerians wants to know, especially christians from the southern nigeria, is the status of terrorist buhari and Jubril Aminu from Sudan, Is like the hausafulani cabal in nigeria are playing a very fast games against our collective economic and political interests by deceiving well over 170 million population in nigeria in other to have continued hold on to political power , to enable them to continue stealing and looting our oil money, to the detriment of the oil producing southern regions of nigeria. Doubts came into us when important personalities started making comments that shows the nigerians are actually on a. “ONE CHANCE BUS” for instance, look at these comments: I LEFT ASO ROCK WITHOUT SAYING A WORD, AS I NOTICED I WASN’T DISCUSSING WITH PRESIDENT BUHARI ” — IBE KACHIKWU. THAT MAN IN ASO ROCK IS NOT MY FATHER HE IS ACTING STRANGE HE DOES NOT RECOGNISE ME AGAIN — ZARAH BUHARI. MY FATHER IS ACTING STRANGE HE DID NOT RECOGNISE ME ANY MORE ANY TIME I WANT TO TALK TO HIM HE WILL REFER ME TO HIS PERSONAL ASSISTANT I AM DOUBTING IF THAT MAN IS. MY. REAL FATHER — ZARAH BUHARI. 10TH OCTOBER, 2017 on ECO CITY NEWS. I THINK MAMMAN DAURA, ABBA KYARI AND OTHER MEMBERS OF THE CABALS, ARE NOT TELLING US THE WHOLE TRUTH ABOUT BUHARI . SOME THING IS WRONG SOME WHERE. HAUSAFULANI ISLAMIC TERRORISTS, CAN DO ANYTHING IN NIGERIA, TO HOLD ON TO POLITICAL POWER. THEY CREATED POVERTY. SITUATIONS, UNCERTAINITIES , COMMOTIONS. AND CONFUSIONS AMONGST THE MASSES ONLY TO. REMAIN IN POWER.
