A petition activist Reno Omokri started to make ICC jail President Muhammadu Buhari for his role in the alleged massacre of EndSARS protesters at the Lekki Tollgate on October 20, 2020, has gained traction.
No fewer than 73,000 Nigerians both home and abroad have igned the petitions on Change .Org.
This is the second attempt by activists willing to get Buhari hammered over the October 20 crisis.
The first was submitted to the UK Parliament in the wake of the crisis—to ban Buhari and his Minister Lai Mohammed, among others, from the UK and freeze Nigeria’s assets.
Nothing however came of it.
The latest effort began a day after the Lagos ENDSARS panel report was leaked to the press.
The leaked report, the National Daily reported, has been discredited even by one of the panelists.
Many Nigerians have also spotted irregularities in the content.
While the Lagos government is studying the original report for its white paper, Omokri made a social media post begging Nigerians to sign on to the petition he initiated to jail the president.
The former presidential aide said the petition will be submitted to the President of the ICC, Piotr Hofmański after it receives 100k signatures.
“By the grace of God, Buhari will retire to prison in 2023 and all future Presidents will see that there is a consequence to the mass murder of Nigerians by the state,” he said.
