ICC Expresses Concern Over Alleged Evidence Tampering

The prosecutor of the International Criminal Court (ICC), Fatou Bensouda has expressed concerns over the alleged attempts to tamper or destroy evidence concerning the December 2015 massacre of members of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN).
Bensouda who disclosed this to newsmen in Abuja explained that in its 2019 end of the year assessment report, he was alarmed by allegations of tampering with evidence, adding that the Nigerian authorities have not taken adequate judicial action against persons indicted for the serious crimes.
He however, noted that although investigation and prosecutorial steps are being taken by the authorities to ascertain the criminal responsibility of suspected Boko Haram members, they appear limited in scope and depth.
Meanwhile, he urged the government to fulfil its commitment promises as the Nigerian authorities are yet to provide the Office with relevant information on the killing.
