Buhari guilty of genocide, Fani-Kayode insists

As the campaign for the 2015 election hots up, the Director, Me­dia and Publicity, Peoples Demo­cratic Party (PDP), Presidential Campaign Organisation, Chief Femi-Fani Kayode, has called on the International Criminal Court at The Hague, to try the presiden­tial candidate of All Progressive Congress (APC), Gen. Moham­madu Buhari (rtd), for crimes against humanity.

Addressing newsmen in Umuahia, Kayode said “the is­sues raised centered on the role General Buhari allegedly played, during the very tragic events in the core north in the mid-60’s, just before the civil war, when no fewer than 100,000 innocent and defenceless Igbo civilians, mainly women and children, were killed within a period of three months by irate and well-armed local mobs, the Asaba massacre of adult Igbo males and the disap­pearance of N2.8 billion from the coffers of the government.

“Many have asked and won­dered whether it is true that Gen­eral Buhari was amongst those that covertly orchestrated and encouraged those killings and that he supported the slaughter of these innocent and helpless citizens.

“We consider this issue most relevant today because this same man, who some people have al­leged was involved in this car­nage and genocide, is desperate to become the next President of Nigeria”.

He recalled the allegations against General Buhari at the Oputa panel that he was in the division that took part in the mas­sacre adding that, Buhari ordered those killings.
