A lawyer, Joseph Nwaegbu, has filed a criminal complaint against activist-lawyer, Femi Falana (SAN), before the International Criminal Court in Hague, Netherlands, for allegedly instigating the #EndSARS protests.

The petitioner said the protest led to killing of innocent citizens, destruction of property, among others.

His complaint, dated November 4, 2020, was addressed to the Office of Madame Fatou Bensouda, the ICC Prosecutor.

Nwaegbu, who claimed to be acting for his group, Make Nigeria Better Initiative (MNBI), said: “On the recent #EndSARS protests, which turned violent across the country, we beg to submit that the role played by Mr. Falana before, during and after what observers described as ‘the mother of all protests in Nigeria’ is not only ignoble but criminal.”

The petitioner accused Falana of spreading fake news to further incite the youths against the government, which he said resulted in killings and destruction of properties.

The ICC acknowledged the receipt of the complaints through a reply by its Head of Information and Evidence Unit, Mark P. Dillon.
