Former service chiefs should be investigated by ICC – Fayose


Former Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, has called on the International Criminal Court and other relevant authorities to investigate the tenure of the “sacked” service chiefs.

Fayose who shared on his official Twitter handle urged for a probe into the human rights abuses and extrajudicial killings under their watch.

He also accused them of only serving themselves and their pockets, rendering Nigeria insecure.

He said this following their resignation which was announced on Tuesday by the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.).

He said, “The new service chiefs should learn from their immediate predecessors and remember nothing lasts forever.

“It is my call to the ICC and other relevant authorities that the tenure of the “sacked” service chiefs should be investigated, most importantly human rights abuses and extrajudicial killings under their watch and commands.

“The sacked service chiefs only served themselves and their pockets and can at best be described as “Disservice Chiefs” under whom Nigeria became completely insecure.

“Though coming after persistent pressure from Nigerians, President Buhari’s removal of the Service Chiefs and their replacement is a right step in the right direction.

“It is yet another VICTORY for the people of Nigeria.”

Meanwhile, new service chiefs were announced today by the President who gave their names as Major-General Leo Irabor, Chief of Defence Staff; Major-General I. Attahiru, Chief of Army Staff; Rear Admiral A.Z Gambo, Chief of Naval Staff; and Air-Vice Marshal I.O Amao, Chief of Air Staff.
