A Lagos based human rights lawyer, Mr. Femi Falana (SAN), has called for the renaming of streets named after colonial administrative officers in Lagos and other parts of the country.

He therefore urged the Lagos state government to rename streets like Bourdilion, where the home of ex-governor  Bola Tinubu is located, adding that the name is a remembrance of those who brought untold hardship on Nigerians.

Falana spoke at the unveiling of a statue erected in honor of late legal luminary, right activist and pro democracy icon, late Chief Gani Fawehinmi at Ojota park, also known as the Liberty Park, yesterday.
