Mr. Olisa Agbakoba announced on Tuesday that his firm will sue Dana Air on behalf of the families of the 153 passengers who were killed when the plane crashed into a residential building in Lagos on Sunday, 3 June.
The former president of the Nigerian Bar Association said the grieving families reached out to his OA & A firm asking for representation against the firm.
He explained that the families were looking to enforce their rights and claims emanating from the deadly crash of Dana Air Flight 992.
“This is a complementary public interest litigation and advocacy initiative by the firm to support those who have suffered varying degrees of losses. The suit will be commenced soon,” Agbakoba said.
He said OA&A had written to the Chief Coroner of Lagos State, requesting an inquest into the death of the victims, the Punch reported.
The letter requested that the coroner “shall hold an inquest whenever he is informed that the death of a deceased person lying within his Coroners District was a result of death in a violent, unnatural or suspicious situation.”
