Human rights lawyer, Mr. Femi Falana (SAN), has said he will on Wednesday  (today) sue the Federal Government following the injuries he sustained after falling into a manhole.

Falana said this while delivering his speech at the National Stakeholders’ Summit on Whistle-blowing 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 tomorrow I will sue the Federal Government.”

Falana also flayed Governor Rochas Okorocha for erecting statues in honour of the South African President, Jacob Zuma, 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.
