Good News For Olusegun Obasanjo, As Human Rights Activist, Femi Falana, Vows To Defend The Ex-President, But Only On One Condition

A Human Rights Lawyer and Senior Advocate of Nigeria, SAN, Femi Falana, has asked former President, Olusegun Obasanjo, not to be worried about anything.

He said this during his appearance on Channels Television’s ‘Sunday Politics’, while reacting to the recent allegation by the Elder Statesman against the Federal Government.

Former President Obasanjo, had accused the Federal Government of allegedly planning to indict him through a series of plans, with the aim of silencing him from expressing his concerns over the state of the nation.

He had also alleged in a statement, on Friday, that his name was on a security watch list, and that the security of his life cannot be guaranteed.

Falana, on his part, assured the former President to remain calm, adding that, he would ensure that he (Obasanjo), gets justice, only on one condition.

He said: “General Obasanjo has nothing to worry about, I will ensure that his rights are not violated.

“We are going to adopt the same attitude when he and the late General (Shehu) Yar’Adua and others, were tried illegally and sentenced to death.”

The Senior Advocate of Nigeria, however, stated that: “We cannot stop Buhari, if there are grounds to arrest the former President, to account for his own actions.”

He noted that in the case of economic and financial crimes, there is no way he can prevent the Federal Government from carrying out its investigation.

Falana insisted that while Obasanjo had stated that he was ready for a probe, the human rights community would ensure that his rights are not violated within the ambit of the law.
