With the elections drawing closer, all eyes are on Nigeria. Including those of the International Criminal Court at The Hague, who have revealed that the First Lady, Dame Patience Jonathan, is liable to prosecution for her comments allegedly at a PDP rally in Calabar 2 weeks ago.
The global criminal court made it known to The Cable that they had received APC’s formal complaint levelled against the First Lady and as such have begun conducting preliminary examinations relating to the situations in Nigeria.
And what did the First Lady say to get the attention of the ICC? At a PDP rally in Calabar two weeks ago, she allegedly called on supporters of the party to stone anyone who came to the state asking for change.
Just in case you didn’t know…APC’s slogan is “Change”.
The international community doesn’t take comments like these lightly and views them as inciting violence.
The International Court further revealed it would take ALL necessary steps when looking into these allegations leveled against Mama Peace including interrogating her…if necessary.
The ICC further reiterated their stand against election violence.
DO YOU THINK THIS IS A POLITICAL WITCH-HUNT?
