Over the course of the week from 29 November to 3 December 2021, the Wayamo Foundation held two different workshops in Abuja, both in their respective ways linked to the need to address international crimes that fall under the jurisdiction of the International Criminal Court (ICC).
On 25 May 2021 the Wayamo Foundation hosted a one day training workshop for Nigeria’s Serious Crimes Response Team, a highly specialised unit of military investigators and prosecutors, who would be specifically trained to investigate and prosecute alleged war crimes and crimes against humanity, both of which potentially fall under the jurisdiction of the International Criminal Court (ICC).
On 21 May 2021, Wayamo hosted its third media engagement for Nigerian journalists who work on issues pertaining to international criminal justice and accountability. The objective of these meetings is to strengthen reporting skills and build knowledge on critical justice-related issues affecting the region, ranging from the role of the International Criminal Court (ICC) in Nigeria to security challenges and the domestic prosecution of alleged Boko Haram suspects.
On 17 May 2021, the Wayamo Foundation held a workshop on the creation of an electronic case-file database and the usage of digital evidence in international criminal investigations within the Complex Casework Group (CCG), a specialised unit coming under the Directorate of Public Prosecutions.
On 9 February, Wayamo hosted its second media engagement for journalists who work on issues pertaining to international criminal justice and accountability. The event followed a hybrid model, with journalists attending from Abuja, Nigeria, and the majority of the experts joining participants via Zoom.
On 4 February 2021, the Wayamo Foundation and the Nigerian Institute of Advanced Legal Studies (NIALS) held their first joint international criminal law (ICL) and international humanitarian law (IHL) course in Abuja, Nigeria.
Wayamo held a media engagement as part of its scheduled Nigeria programme. Attending the event in person were journalists from the Voice of Nigeria, News Agency of Nigeria, Nigerian Television Authority, Radio Nigeria, Hallow Mace Communications, TVS News and Premium Times.
Wayamo brings leading Nigerian prosecutors and investigators together at one-day retreat in Abuja on prosecution coordination, prosecution-guided investigations, information sharing and inter-agency collaboration.
Since the earliest days of the Covid-19 pandemic, the Wayamo Foundation has sought to re-imagine its work in promoting justice and accountability
