SENSITIZATION PROGRAMME ON THE ROME STATUTE AND ITS RELEVANCE…
On the 19th of July 2018, the NCICC carried out a sensitization programme at the university of Lagos Nigeria to educate the Law and Humanities students on the relevance of the International Criminal Court to Nigerian Criminal Justice System.
The students were lectured about the origin of the court, crimes and jurisdiction of the court and the need for the domestic implementation of the Rome Statute Bill into Nigerian local legislation.
The student numbering about 200 were elated to be part of the programme and asked meaningful questions regarding the delay in the domestication of the bill and how they can play a part in the fight against impunity in the country.
NCICC staff welcomed questions and issued the NCICC tool kit on how to be involved in the fight against impunity using the mercenary of the International Criminal Court.
The dean of law faculty professor Atsenua and the public law lecture Dr Karibi Whyte was also present during the programme and showed appreciation to the NCICC for taking their time to educate the students on such an important topic.
