Case filed with ICC against Nigeria for Genocide against Biafra / Igbo
Haram Massacres Are A Smoke Screen For Biafra / Igbo Genocide
Spurred by the genocidal events in Northern Nigeria such as this week’s massacre
in Kano, BILIE’s attorney has filed an important and historic claim with the
office of the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court regarding crimes
against humanity committed against the Biafra / Igbo people by the government of
The claim which is supported by confidential witness statements requests
immediate intervention by the International Criminal Court Prosecutor to prevent
and prosecute crimes against humanity on the following grounds:
1. The ongoing Boko Haram massacres
target Igbo and other Biafrans as part of an ongoing government policy of ethnic
cleansing and genocide.
2. The government admits it is
infiltrated by Boko Haram but denies there are any crimes against humanity being
3. So called government commissions
and inquiries do nothing to prevent the crimes aside from creating a smoke
screen for further crimes against Biafra / Igbo.
BILIE—Biafra Liberation in Exile—supports the total independence of Biafra. BILIE calls for the prosecution of
those in the Nigerian government who support, enable, or fail to prevent the
crimes against humanity being committed by Boko Haram.
This communication is the first step in a wider BILIE campaign to expose the
ongoing genocide against Biafrans / Igbo by the Nigerian federal government
which is aimed at marginalizing, murdering, and controlling the Igbo in order to
plunder the wealth of Biafra. The
master plan of the government is nothing less than to exterminate a third of all
Igbo, force another third to become refugees and to lock the rest of the Igbo in
a Biafran ghetto for their own “protection.”
BILIE is also working on an urgent request to the United Nation Human Rights
Council and will soon be initiating a case in the African Court of Human and
Peoples Rights in Arusha to stop the genocide against Biafra / Igbo people and
the ongoing plundering of Biafran resources.
