In the complaints filed, Mr. Joseph claimed the role played by Mr. Falana before, during, and after what observers described as “the mother of all protests in Nigeria” was not only ignoble but criminal.

The group in their lawsuit also accused Falana of having maintained an antagonistic posture against Nigeria’s security forces, especially the military ever since the country returned to democracy.

The petitioner accused Falana of spreading fake news to further incite the youths against the government, which he said resulted in killings and destruction of properties.
