Bruce Fein, the American counsel for the detained leader of the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, on Monday night said he has obtained a notice from Karim Asad Ahmad Khan, the International Criminal Court (ICC) Prosecutor, over a criminal complaint he filed against Abubakar Malami, Minister of Justice of Nigeria; Justice Binta Nyako of the Federal High Court (FHC), Abuja; and Justice John Tosho, the Chief Judge of the FHC.
POLITICS NIGERIA had reported that Fein charged the three legal practitioners with conspiring with President Muhammadu Buhari and Kenya President, Uhuru Kenyatta, “to commit crimes against humanity” vis-à-vis his client’s re-arrest in the East African country in 2021 and subsequent transfer to Nigeria.
Providing an update on the legal action, Fein said his complaints “are substantiated by probable cause”.
He also stated that the Chief Prosecutor is investigating “after three-judge vetting”.
“June 10, I received notice from the Chief Prosecutor (CP) of the ICC that my genocide-crimes against humanity complaints against AG Malami, Judge Nyako, and CJ Tosho are substantiated by probable cause. Further CP investigation after 3-judge vetting. Justice cannot be outfoxed,” Fein wrote on his known Twitter handle.
