Femi Falana human rights lawyer, has said he will sue the federal government following injuries he sustained after falling into a manhole.
In his speech at the National Stakeholders Summit on Whistleblowing in Abuja, Falana said he is currently limping and using a walking stick due to the injury he suffered from the accident.
‘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,” he said.
Falana also lambasted Rochas Okorocha, Governor of Imo State for erecting statues in honour of Jacob Zuma, South African President, and his Liberian counterpart, Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf.
The human rights lawyer said both Presidents had corruption cases in their countries and Okorocha was insulting the sensibilities of Nigerians.
