Popular Lagos lawyer, Femi Falana, SAN, has revealed that Nigerians who pay ransoms to secure freedom for their abducted loved ones t can approach the courts to compel the federal government to refund same.

This according to Falana is because, “the responsibility for protecting lives and properties lies squarely with the government.”

Falana disclosed this on Wednesday at the 18th Anti-Corruption Situation Room, ACSR, organized by the HEDA Resource Centre in partnership with the McArthur Foundation.

The senior advocate who was the keynote speaker at the event said: “If a family pays a ransom to secure freedom of their abducted ones; they should approach the courts and demand a refund of the amount paid because the primary responsibility of government is to secure the people.”
