Lagos human rights activist and lawyer, Mr. Bamidele Aturu, has filed a suit against the Ministry of Aviation and the Minister, seeking an order for them to release the reports of all air crashes in the country since November 20, 1969.

The suit followed what the firm called the refusal of the respondents to “comply with clear and express provision of the Freedom of Information Act 2011.”

The plaintiffs are praying the court for an order granting them leave to apply for judicial review and to seek the following relief: An order of mandamus directing and or compelling the 1st and the 2ndRespondents to disclose to or make available to the Applicant or grant him access to the information requested by him in his letter dated the 13thJune, 2012.

The reports cover close to 40 air crashes that have occurred  from 1969 to date.
