Human rights lawyer and Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN), Femi Falana, says he will sue the federal government following injuries he sustained in a road accident.
Falana said this while delivering his speech at the National Stakeholders Summit on Whistleblowing in Abuja on Tuesday.
He 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 on Wednesday I will sue the Federal Government.”
Falana also lambasted Governor Rochas Okorocha for erecting statues in honour of South African President, Jacob Zuma, and his Liberian counterpart, Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf.
He said both Presidents had corruption cases in their countries and Okorocha was insulting the sensibilities of Nigerians.
