It can be recalled that during the week, a muslim group gave Falz a seven-day ultimatum to take down his “This is Nigeria” video or face a legal action.
According to the group, the video made a mockery of their religion because some girls were seen in the footage wearing hijab and dancing shaku shaku.
In an interview with Entertainment Plus , Human rights activist and prominent lawyer, Femi Falana (SAN), said he hopes that the muslim group MURIC will go to court at the expiration of the ultimatum given to his son. According to him, the video in question is loaded with messages and should be encouraged by anybody who has the interest of this country at heart. In additional, Falana said he has confirmed that his son, who’s also a lawyer by profession, is handling the threat within the sphere of the law.
“My son is a lawyer and I have confirmed that he’s handling the threat within the ambit of the law. The video in question contains a lot of messages and it should be encouraged by anybody who has the interest of our country at heart.”
“Since the group has threatened to sue him or threatening to sue him. My son has promised that he would meet them in court. I support that decision. We all belong to this country, nobody can threaten another person. Freedom of speech is constitutionally guaranteed” Falana stated.
“If you are aggrieved as a result of any publication or record, the appropriate thing for you to do is to go to court. I’d hope that they will go to court at the expiration of the ultimatum given to my son.” said the well-known lawyer.
