Barely 24 hours after their removal by President Muhammadu Buhari, former Ekiti Governor, Ayo Fayose on Tuesday described the tenure of the immediate service chiefs as “disservice” to Nigeria, urging International Criminal Court (ICC) to investigate them for possible human rights abuses and extra-judicial killings.
While describing their sack as a “step in the right direction”, he, however, said the development is a victory for all Nigerians.
In a series of tweets on Tuesday, Fayose said: “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.
“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.
“It is my call to the ICC and other relevant authorities that tenure of the “sacked” Service Chiefs should be investigated, most importantly human rights abuses and extra judicial killings under their watch and commands.”
