FALANA THREATENS TO SUE THE NIGERIAN ARMY.
A Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN) and human rights lawyer, Femi Falana, has given reasons why he is suing the Nigerian Army over the planned Operation Positive Identification.
Falana in a monitored interview, said the Armed Forces have no constitutional rights to usurp the powers vested on the Nigeria Police in the nation’s internal security.
He warned the military against “subjecting Nigerians and other foreigners to a degrading and dehumanizing farce which is unknown to law.”
He advised the armed forces to concentrate their efforts in containing the activities of the Boko Haram terrorists in the northeast rather than embarking on the “planned harassment and intimidation of Nigerians.”
Falana, however, assures that he is working on the court injunction to stop the military.
