ICC places Nigeria under watch over Boko Haram violence
ICC Chief Prosecutor, Mrs. Fatou Bensounda, told journalists at the State House, Abuja on Tuesday, after a meeting with President Goodluck Jonathan, that the court had placed Nigeria under “preliminary examination” as a result of the violence.
She also said the attacks may be described as “crimes against humanity.” Bensouda, however, noted that the ICC was watching to see how the Nigerian government would handle the Boko Haram issue. (Punch)
