Human rights lawyer Femi Falana, SAN, yesterday urged the Nigerian Bar Association to “do more to hold governments at all levels to account for violations of human rights and stop illegal arrests and detention of Nigerians by law enforcement and security agencies.”

Falana said this in a paper delivered yesterday at the induction of Mr. Fatai Adeyemi Abinjo as 37th President of the District 9110 of the Rotary Club, Ogba Lagos.

He said Nigerian lawyers should get organized and reposition the NBA to end illegal arrests and detention.

He said: “Due to the failure of lawyers and judges to hold the government accountable, the human rights of millions of poor Nigerians including civil, political, economic and social rights are violated with almost absolute impunity.”
