Gani Fawehinmi

A year after the passing of famous Nigerian human rights lawyer Gani Fawehinmi, the Lagos government immortalised him with this statue last month. Situated at the Ojota quadrangle junction, it stands as a brilliant testimony to the brave fight fight put up over fifty years by Gani (a.k.a Senior Advocate of the Masses) against military tyranny and despotic leadership.

Well done Gani and may the issues you fought and lived for become things of the past in no time.
