Falana decries S-Court judgement on Bode George

LAGOS — Lagos lawyer, Mr. Femi Falana, yesterday, decried how the Supreme Court annulled two provisions of the Criminal Code of Lagos State without hearing from the Attorney-General of Lagos State in line with established practice in its recent decision on Chief Olabode George and others’ case.

Falana, who was commenting on the legal implications of the  recent judgment of the apex court that reversed the conviction passed on the former Chairman of the Nigerian  Ports Authority, Chief Olabode George by a Lagos High Court, said,  there is no legal justification for declaring sections 104 and 203 of the Criminal Code illegal and unconstitutional.
