The International Criminal Court (ICC) has spoken on Tuesday’s shooting of #EndSARS protesters at Lekki Toll Gate, Lagos, allegedly by Soldiers.

The shooting has attracted global outrage against the Nigerian authorities. The number of deaths from the incident is yet to be ascertained.

“My office has been closely following the tenets around the current protests in Nigeria and the reaction of Nigeria’s law enforcement and security agencies”.

“We have received information alleging crimes and are keeping a close eye on developments, in case violence escalates and indications arise that Rome Statute Crimes may have been committed”.
