The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has said that the Federal Government is planning to report the Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Muhammadu Buhari to the International Criminal Court (ICC) over his role in the 2011 post-election violence.

This was revealed by the spokesperson of the PDP campaign organization, Femi Fani-Kayode during a press conference on Sunday, March 1, in Abuja.

Fani-Kayode stated that arrangements had already been concluded to drag Buhari before the court after his imminent defeat in the upcoming general elections.

“And after its and General Buhari’s rejection at the poll, General Buhari may have to prepare to face charges of human rights abuses and criminality filed against him before the International Criminal Court on account of the 2011 electoral violence in Nigeria,” Fani Kayode said.

“Indeed, international focus is on General Buhari for the 2011 post-election violence and we hope that he is brought to justice for the blood that was shed by his supporters in the violence of 2011; and, we hope he will not precipitate another round of violence in 2015 when he loses,” he added.

Fani-Kayode also criticized Buhari’s recent appearance at Chatham House, London describing it as a stage-managed ‘show of shame.’

The PDP spokesperson also said it was a little too late for Buhari to declare himself a democrat after ruling as a dictator.
