Corporate Accountability and Public Participation Africa (CAPPA) has commended the International Criminal Court (ICC) for concluding preliminary probe into Boko Haram and crimes by security forces of Nigeria against humanity and war crimes to pave way for full investigations.

The ICC Office of the Prosecutor had made the announcement on the Preliminary Investigations on December 11, 2020 and added that the Nigerian government had so far failed in its obligation to hold the shooters accountable.

A statement issued in Lagos by Director of Programmes at CAPPA, Philip Jakpor, commended the ICC for the decision to probe the atrocities, but demanded an extension of its probe to the #EndSARS Lekki shooting of October 20, 2020, which left scores dead and has been denied by the Nigerian authorities.
