The Campaign for Democracy on Sunday called for the prosecution of former President, Goodluck Jonathan by the International Criminal Court sitting in Hague for genocide.
The group also asked the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, to try Jonathan over his alleged roles in the disbursement of the $2.1bn meant for the procurement of arms to fight the Boko Haram war.
In a statement released by its National President, Ifeanyi Odili, the group said: “We (CD) want to assert that there are avalanche of evidences that have linked the former president to the criminal diversion of public funds and genocide against Nigerians.”
“There are enough witnesses by individuals linking the former president to the $2.1 arms scandal.”
“It is not the duty of the CD to begin to mention names of individuals who have been reportedly confessed to the EFCC that the illegalities were based on the instructions from the former president.”
“But now that there are worrisome cases of fraud, wicked diversion of public funds, unwarranted killings by Boko Haram arising from the corrupt practices by the Jonathan’s government, He (Jonathan) should not only be arrested and charged with breech of public trust, criminal diversion of our commonwealth, he should be tried for genocide in the International Criminal Court.”
