Fiery Lagos lawyer, Femi Falana (SAN) says there are too many injustices in Nigeria under President Muhammadu Buhari’s government.
Falana said this while speaking with BBC Yoruba as he made reference to the Federal Government’s hasty decision to extradite Sunday Adeyemo, popularly called Sunday Igboho, from Benin Republic to Nigeria just like leader of proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, but now following due process in embattled police officer, Abba Kyari’s case.
The Human Rights lawyer noted that the present administration’s injustice is obvious which is why he was against the quick extradition of Kanu to Nigeria.
He said, “The Benin government made its Nigerian counterpart understand that its country is not lawless. They insisted on following the due legal processes and said without going to court, they cannot hand over Igboho to you.
“This is how it should be under the law; the judge will scrutinise Nigeria’s extradition request from Cotonou to Abuja.
“That was why I criticised the hasty transfer of IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu from Kenya to Nigeria. Now, the same Government wants Abba Kyari to go to court before he is transferred to the United States. And this is what the government should have done in the case of Kanu.
“There are too many injustices in Nigeria and this is not good.”
