Malcolm Omirhobo, a prominent Nigerian lawyer and human rights advocate, has recently made a striking comparison, suggesting that the Nigerian government’s actions are more concerning than those of Marlian Records.
Marlian Records is helmed by the controversial Nigerian artist Azeez Adeshina Fashola, popularly known as Naira Marley. Omirhobo’s comment stemmed from Naira Marley’s alleged involvement in the circumstances surrounding the passing of Ilerioluwa Oladimeji Aloba, also known as Mohbad.
Furthermore, Omirhobo went on to characterize the Nigerian government as a regime that suppresses its citizens and jeopardizes the future of its youth with unchecked impunity.
The human rights activist disclosed this on his Twitter handle, he wrote, “Nigerian politicians are worst than Marlian Records . They bully, cow, oppress, suppress, repress, subjugate, short change the Nigerian youths and mortgage their future with impunity”.
Malcolm Omirhobo has been involved in numerous legal battles and cases addressing human rights violations, constitutional issues, and governmental accountability in Nigeria. His outspoken criticism of the Nigerian government and his commitment to defending individual rights have made him a prominent figure in the country’s legal and human rights landscape.
