The statement said that the examination will assess whether the legal criteria for opening an investigation under the Rome Statute are met.

The International Court assured that it will make its findings of the preliminary examination public.

Recall that thousands of Nigerians took to the streets in several towns and states to demonstrate against police brutality and illegalities.
