The International Criminal Court says it’s conducting a preliminary examination into the recent EndSARS protests in Nigeria.
Office of the ICC prosecutor said the court had received information on alleged crimes during the protests.
It was gathered that the examination will assess whether the legal criteria for opening an investigation under the Rome Statute are met.
Earlier, the Amnesty International said security forces opened fire on protesters, killing and injuring several people.
However, the Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu and the army have rejected Amnesty’s allegation.
Meanwhile, the ICC said it would make findings of the preliminary examination public.
