The All Progressives Congress (APC) has threatened to
report President Goodluck Jonathan to the International
Criminal Court (ICC) over a violent protest recently held
in Lagos by his supporters.
The protest was conducted on Monday, March 16, by
armed members of the Oodua People’s Congress (OPC)
who announced their support for Jonathan and
demanded the resignation of Attahiru Jega, the
Chairman of the Independent National Electoral
Commission.
The opposition party made the threat on Wednesday,
18, via a statement released by the spokesperson of
the APC campaign organization, Garba Shehu .
The statement reads:
“Our investigations have confirmed that Monday’s (16th
March, 2015) show was a dress-rehearsal for the main
disruption planned for the general elections. Lagos, and
the entire South West, being a stronghold of the All
Progressives Congress (APC), has been marked for
massive disheveling commotion that would involve
killings, maiming and kidnapping.”
“Our findings have further shown that the recent Nine
Billion naira (N9 Billion) Pipeline surveillance contract
to OPC and some militant groups in Southern Nigeria
was the elixir for the latest crude impudence of the pro-
Jonathan armed groups. Indeed, the contract award
was indeed a subterfuge for the mobilization of these
murderous militant groups for the destruction of lives
and property to force the desire of the re-election of
Dr. Goodluck Jonathan on the Nigerian people.”
“As an opposition APC, we are using this medium to
serve Dr. Goodluck Jonathan the notice of our formal
protest of this extreme show of impunity to the
International Criminal Court (ICC). We are aware that
Mrs Patience Jonathan is already on the watch list of
ICC. The activities of this President and his wife as
regards the elections are not patriotic and very
unhelpful for entrenching democratic values in the
nation.”
The APC has reported First Lady, Patience Jonathan to
the ICC and the court has said that it would give due
consideration to the opposition party’s petition.
