Nigeria commitment to her membership of the International Criminal Court (ICC), is unflinching

Acting spokesperson, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Jane Adams said Nigeria was poised towards improving the working methods of the court for efficient delivery of its mandate in the service of humanity and equitable justice.

She said the ministry observed the recent developments on withdrawal of membership of the International Criminal Court (ICC) by some African countries describing the actions as national decisions. South Africa, Gambia, and Burundi had in October announced their intention to withdraw from the ICC. According to the spokesperson the ICC represents the hope and aspirations of millions of people around the world.

She said that Nigeria as a state party to the Rome Statute believed that the court represents an International mechanism for ensuring justice for all. “Nigeria remains a signatory to the Rome Statute adopted on 17 July 1998 and which entered into force in July 1, 2002. Nigeria deposited its instrument on 27 September, 2001. “Many members States of The UN, not just Africans are not yet signatories and state parties of the statute.

“Though non membership does not protect anyone from prosecution by the court as the UN Security Council can refer cases to the Court the time has however come to call on all member states who have not yet signed the Rome Statute to consider becoming signatories to the statute. “It is only by working together that we can ensure that the court effectively performs its functions and serves humanity faithfully,” she stated.

Nigeria according to her underscores the ideals and objectives which inspired the creation of ICC. Adams said this include fighting impunity and ensure that perpetrators of crimes such as war crimes, genocide and crimes against humanity are brought to justice. “A strengthened, reinvigorated and fine-tuned ICC as a symbol of the International Criminal system has an important role to play to offer solace to victims of heinous despicable and dastardly crimes.

“It will also make the perpetrators of those crimes know that there is no rest for the wicked. “We collectively, owe it as a duty to this and future generations, to give voice to the voiceless,” she said.

Adebayo Salami’s acting career started way back in 1964. He joined a group called Young Concert Party, led by Ojo Ladipo (Baba Mero). This group’s name changed a few times, from Ojo Ladipo Theatre Group to finally Awada Kerikeri Theatre Group. When Baba Mero passed away in 1978, Salami became the leader of the group. This put him in the spotlight and helped him get noticed.

Salami also made movie history. He appeared in the very first Yoruba film ever made, called “Ajani Ogun.” The lead role in that movie was played by Adeyemi Afolayan, the father of well-known actors Kunle Afolayan and Gabriel Afolayan.

In 1985, Salami didn’t just act, he also produced his first movie, “Ogun Ajaye,” with his Awada Kerikeri group. Since then, he’s become a well-rounded movie talent. He acts, directs, and produces movies all the time, making him a big player in the Yoruba film industry.

It seems acting talent runs in the family! Salami has two sons, Femi and Tope Adebayo, who have become successful actors and movie producers themselves.

Mayorkun addresses Nicki Dabarbie’s ritual allegations | Fab.ng

Afrobeats singer Mayorkun has responded to claims made by social media influencer Nicki Dabarbie. She accused him and his colleague, Skiibii (Abbey Elias), of attempting to use her for a ritual.

On April 19, 2024, Nicki Dabarbie accused Mayorkun and Skiibii of plotting to use her for a ‘money ritual’. She supported her claims with pictures and videos describing the incident.

Mayorkun took to his X page to deny all the allegations. He stated that he had never met Nicki Dabarbie and was unaware of her existence before the allegations.

Mayorkun mentioned that he initially wanted to let the court handle the situation, but the spread of false information prompted him to speak out. He stressed that he did not know Dabarbie and warned fans about the dangers of cancellation culture and its potential harm to his life and career.

He wrote:

“You know, I was going to let this remain as a court case but when I checked the comments under some of the blogs where these ridiculous allegations were posted, I was quickly reminded of how gullible most people are on the internet and how they are ready to run along, spreading any negative news without any form of clarity.

“Just for the record, I never met that person on the said day, still never seen that person till this day, never knew about that person’s existence not until those allegations came up.. yet she claimed I put ‘something’ in her drink. A lot of people believed that story, and you think I’ll let this libelous claim fly? No!”

He added,

“I wanna re-instate, I have never seen this person before, even as I am typing this! I still haven’t set my eyes on this person.. Like, what else can I say? How else can I prove this? There’s no need for me to ask for an apology where I won’t get any. I just needed to say this publicly and get it off my chest.. cos if it was a case of ‘cancellation’ as many people are quick to do, I for don go back to dey find work for bank.”

He stated that he would pursue additional charges against her, even though she is currently in prison on unrelated charges.

Earlier, Mayorkun had threatened to file a N1 billion lawsuit against Nicki Dabarbie.
