Femi Falana, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Femi Falana, has debunk the rumor that he or his chambers are representing Timi and Busola Dakolo. Falana clarified his position on the matter this afternoon following conflicting reports that he had taken up the case.
The human rights lawyer affirmed that he only intervened when the Dakolos’ expressed fear over their petition.
Explaining how he came into the matter, Falana told Punch that he was contacted after the Dakolos had written their petition.
“They wrote their petition before contacting us. When they met us, they expressed the fear that their petition might not be investigated.
My chambers intervened by requesting the police authorities to investigate the complaint. The IG has already granted the request. I confirmed the position to you yesterday, Monday July 22, 2019.
