Human rights activist Femi Falana has petitioned the National Human Rights Commission, demanding compensation for the families of about 200 Internally-displaced persons “mistakenly’ bombed in January 2017 by a Nigerian Air Force jet at a camp in Rann, Borno State.

In the petition, Falana said excuses by the military in defence of what happened did not hold water.
