Reno Omokri, a former Special Assistant to Nigeria’s former President, Goodluck Jonathan initiated this petition on Tuesday October 19, 2020.

 It reads,

“On October 20, 2020, the Buhari administration murdered multiple innocent, unarmed, peaceful

#EndSARS protesters at the Lekki Toll Gate in a massacre.

“These youths were protesting to put an end to the rampant police brutality that had become the hallmark of the

Buhari regime, which treats so-called repentant Boko Haram almost like royalty,

while coming hard on young Nigerians; sometimes for the flimsiest reason, such as wearing dreadlocks.

“Following the murders of these protesters, the Buhari administration denied that the incident ever occurred. They threatened those, like myself, who insisted, with proof, that this massacre happened. The government also threatened to jail people who called out the murderers.

“However, on Monday, November 15, 2021, the Lagos State Panel of Inquiry into

EndSARS released its report to the state government in which it established judicially that not only did the massacre occur,

but that the government of Muhammadu Buhari and its agents– the Nigerian Army and police–perpetrated the murders.

“Therefore, this petition is directed at the International Criminal Court to set machinery in motion

for the trial of Muhammadu Buhari for crimes against humanity in the same way that former Liberian President,

Charles Taylor, was tried and convicted.
