Government Must Compensate Business Owners —Falana

Human Rights Activist , Femi Falana ( SAN ) , says governments at all levels must compensate business owners whose assets were looted by hoodlums in the country in the aftermath of the # EndSARS protests against police brutality .

He made this known on Monday in an interview with Arise TV monitored by The PUNCH.

Falana also condemned the destruction of lives and assets by hoodlums in the tragedy of the past few days after the Lekki shootings in Lagos State.

He stated that those who lost loved ones across the country to the violence that marred the # EndSARS protests must also be compensated .

The Senior Advocate of Nigeria said , “ While I sympathise with those who have lost goods , while I sympathise with families that have lost their loved ones , we must make a case out of what has happened .

“ I am talking about the development of our laws . Those who have lost goods , those who have lost properties that were not insured , should put sentiments apart, don ’t say because the government in Abuja is our party, no , the law has left that stage .
