Fiery lawyer and human rights activist, Femi Falana, has lashed out at Minister of Information, Lai Mohammed, calling him an executive rascal following his comments on the #EndSARS report published by the Lagos State Judicial Panel. Mohammed had criticized and picked holes in the report which was submitted to the Lagos State Governor last week, claiming it was fake and riddled with discrepancies. However, Falana, in a statement titled “FG Is Not Competent To Reject The Report Of Okuwobi Judicial Commission Of Inquiry,” responded to the Minister’s comments over the lack of originality of the report, accusing the Minister of “executive rascality”.

By not waiting “for the reaction of the states,” the Minister has overruled the President of the Republic.,” Falana railed.

No doubt, these individuals are entitled to express their opinions on the report of the Commission. But the call for the rejection of the report is illegal in every material...
