Over 100,000 people have signed a petition asking the International Criminal Court (ICC) to arrest and prosecute the Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Adamu Mohammed over alleged killing of protesters during the #ENDSARS protests.

Shared on the Change.Org website, the petition accused the police of “unleashing war against defenceless and innocent Nigerian youths whose only crimes were demanding an end to extortions, harassments, illegal arrests, detentions, and wanton killings by the rogue police unit, SARS.”

The petition stated that no less than 10 peaceful protestors had been reportedly shot dead, including Jimoh Isiaq, and countless others arrested and detained by the “members of the criminal unit in the police while the extortions still continuing unabated”.
