Bruce Fein to Drag FG to ICC Over Rights Violation During Nnamdi Kanu Trial

Nnamdi Kanu’s lawyer, Bruce Fein  has moved to drag the Federal Government of Nigeria to the International Criminal Court over the serval sightings of rights violation. Bruce has also shown disappointment due to the manner of treatment he have been receiving since he landed in Nigeria to visit his client, the leader of IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu.



The displeased and disappointed Bruce Fein who was in the country to see his client, Nnamdi Kanu at DSS but was denied access, stayed back till Wednesday to witness the Kanu’s trial but was also denied access to the courtroom by the DSS again.


Bruce while speaking with journalists after the proceedings, and the trial was adjourned till January 2021, said,



“Today was the fifth time I was told I could not enter the courtroom despite the court’s previous order that Nnamdi could have access to any three persons he wants to.


“I had the chance to talk briefly to him on my way to the courtroom. It is clear that I am the target in particular. That’s the reason why this proceeding did not transpire today.


“And I’m here to tell Nigerians and the international community that I’m taking this to international tribunals. It is clear that the Nigerian tribunals are compromised.”

In his words, Bruce disclosed he will petition “the Working Group on Arbitrary Detention in Geneva, the International Court of Justice in the Hague, the ICC in the Hague and I’ll be going to the United States Congress and urging that sanctions be considered against Nigeria for gross violations of fundamental human rights”.

“I’m here not to be an irritant but there are huge international law issues that are present in Nnamdi Kanu’s case. I’m here because I’m an international expert to provide more enlightenment on what legal issues are present here,” Fein added.
