Falana Sues FG After Breaking Leg

Femi Falana, a senior advocate of Nigeria and human rights lawyer, has said he will sue the Federal Government after he broke his leg when he fell into a manhole. Falana said the accident happened while he was walking to his office on Shehu Shagari Way, Abuja.

He made his intention known at the National Stakeholders Summit on Whistleblowing on Tuesday. He told the audience that he would not leave it to God as many others would have done.

“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.
