Bakassi Peninsula has never been part of Nigeria

Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Robert Clarke argues that the Bakassi Peninsula was territorially never in Nigeria. Clarke said this during an in an interview with our judiciary correspondent, Shola Soyele.

Clarke said “some legal practitioners who thought they could procure a false judgment led the country down the path of submitting to the jurisdiction of the World Court”.

He added that ” because 80 per cent of Bakassi citizens are Nigerians we can defend it by force. So, knowing fully well that we do not own it we should not have subscribed to going to the world court for a litigation”
