Disobedience To Court Worse Under Buhari Than Babangida, Abacha - Falana

Share This

Human rights lawyer, Femi Falana, has accused the present administration as being more defiant to court orders and the rule of law than what obtained in the regimes of late General Sani Abacha and Ibrahim Babangida.


Falana was reacting the re-arrest of Omoyele Sowore by officials of the Department of State Service (DSS) on Friday, December 6, Nigerian Tribune reports.


The renowned lawyer said that although disobedience to verdicts by the judiciary was terrible during the administration of Abacha, the case is worse under the leadership of President Muhammadu Buhari.


Falana said: “Even the most murderous, fascistic of them all, the late Sani Abacha, never disobeyed the orders of the court, with respect to detainees."


Femi Falana said that disobedience to court orders as it is in the current administration was better in the regimes of late General Sani Abacha and Ibrahim Babangida.

He recalled that the only time the Babangida regime disobeyed court order was in the case of the then Gongola state which is now Adamawa.


The lawyer said: "The current secretary to government of the federation, Boss Mustapha, was the chairman of the bar in Yola, he alerted the then president that a court order was being disobeyed. The NBA met and decided to boycott the courts. Two days later, the same government ran to a court and got an order against us."


Falana accused Malami of being in the forefront of disobedience to court rulings for Buhari's administration.


In the editorial published in print on Wednesday, December 11, the national daily accused the President Buhari administration of serial disregard for human rights and some legal provisions of the Nigerian constitution.
