Falana threatens to sue federal Government



FEMI Falana, SAN, a human rights lawyer, has threatens that he would on Wednesday, November 15,  sue the federal government following injuries he sustained after falling into a manhole.

Falana, who disclosed  this while delivering his speech at the National Stakeholders Summit on Whistleblowing in Abuja on Tuesday, November 14, said: “I am sure you saw me limping and using a walking stick when I was coming in. It is because I fell into a manhole while walking to my office on Shehu Shagari Way.

“I broke my leg and I am even wearing Plaster of Paris and I was even hospitalised. So, I won’t like the ordinary Nigerian leave it to God.

“I have decided that tomorrow I will sue the Federal Government.”

Falana also lambasted Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State for erecting statues in honour of President Jacob Zuma of South Africa and Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf, his Liberian counterpart.

He alleged that both presidents had corruption cases in their countries and that Okorocha had insulted the sensibilities of Nigerians by honouring them.
