President Muhammadu Buhari’s visit to the International Criminal Court (ICC) at the Hague, Netherlands on 17th July 2018, has caused a major reaction by Nigerians in the country.
President Buhari delivered a keynote address on the occasion of the 20th anniversary celebration of the International Criminal Court, ICC, during which the president said he would, as the current anti-corruption champion for the African Union, reaffirm Nigeria’s support to the fundamental values of the Rome Statute and to the ideals of the ICC.
The Nigerian National Association – The Netherlands (NNA-NL) headed by the Chief Lady Evelyn Azih, held a peaceful protest at the premises of ICC to seek answers from President Buhari, to the killings, hunger, the political and economic corruption going on in Nigeria.
Following the protest, it was revealed that a staff of the Embassy, Mr. I.J. Umana immediately condemned the peaceful protest carried out by the Association during the president’s visit, which led Chief Lady Evelyn to release a letter condemning Mr Umana.
