Femi Falana Clara Chime
Seems the last hasnt bee heard of Clara Chime saga -
Human rights advocate Femi Falana has repudiated the claim ( READ HERE) by the governor of Enugu State, Mr. Sullivan Chime, that he did not receive a brief from his wife to represent her to secure her release from the illegal detention imposed by her husband, the governor. “I wish to say, without any fear of contradiction, that I have her instructions in writing to challenge her illegal detention at the Government House, Enugu,” he declared in a statement on Wednesday. “Through the assistance of some of the security personnel in the Government House she has since spoken to me on phone to confirm her instructions. Indeed, Mrs Chime's mother and her personal physician have also been in touch with me urging me to take all appropriate measures to secure her freedom from Governor Chime's illegal confinement.”
The Nigerian community in India is feeling "aggrieved" after one of its citizens was killed in Goa. Goa is known as a tourist location. The state's subsequent order to deport Nigerians living illegally there was like "rubbing salt on their wounds". Meanwhile, police in Goa have made the first arrest in the murder case. Tensions have been rising since a Nigerian man was stabbed to death last week and five others were wounded.
