While speaking at an event in Lagos on Sunday, 2nd April, Falana stated that Falz who is also a Lawyer is always at loggerheads with the government because of what he was made to experience while growing up.
He said that his frequent arrest as a legal practitioner always bothered his son, who thought he was a criminal.
“One of these guys one day said, ‘Falana talk to your son; he should stop embarrassing the government.
“Did I say which government? Do you mean that boy who is an adult? Can I give you his number so you can talk to him? But he was careful because when that boy was growing up. I was being arrested from time to time. So, the only language he understood was detention, arrest, and the rest of them.
“One day when that boy was six, he asked his mother, “Our teacher taught us that only criminals were arrested. Is my father a criminal? Why is he always being arrested? And the mother had to say that in Nigeria, under the military, only two sets of political suspects. Politics suspects are those who are out to expose the criminality of the government. That is why you see going on”.
Falz was among the coverer of the End SARS protest that rocked the nation in October 2020 demanding an end to Injustice and police brutality.
