The family of Late Writer and activist, Puis Adesanmi, have refused to take the death of the Professor laying low, as they have filed a lawsuit against The Boeing Company.
Boeing Company is the Chicago-based manufacturer of Boeing 737 Max 8 planes, one of which crashed in the service of Ethiopian Airlines as its Flight 302 on March 10, en route to Nairobi from Addis Ababa, causing the deaths of all 157 aboard, including the Professor.
Adesanmi Family are suing the planemaker for its neglect in educating the pilot of the ill-fated plane of the dangers inherent in the use of the plane Maneuvering Characteristics Augmentation System (MCAS) software.
The suit argues that the company knew that the MCAS was defective and dangerously flawed but instead ignored safety in pursuit of profit.

In a statement, one of the attorneys, Nomaan Husain, said: “Once again corporate greed has placed profits over safety with tragic consequences for the public.” Another, Floyd Wisner, said: “In my decades of representing families of the victims of air crashes, I have never seen a case with such serious misconduct by an aircraft manufacturer.”
The press release was sent to the newspaper by the social critic Bamidele Ademola-Olateju. “I took the first step to seek Justice for you my dear friend Pius Adebola Adesanmi,” she wrote. “Nothing can bring you back to us but I have taken this first step for JUSTICE on behalf of Lois Olufunke Adesanmi and Oluwadamilare Monica Adesanmi.”
It includes a statement by Pius’ mother, Lois Olufunke Adesanmi. “Everyday my heart bleeds over the loss of Bola,” she said. “Every day, I play his life from infancy to his death in my mind. Most importantly, I think about how I dedicated him to God at the Catholic Cathedral at Egbe at the age of 12. I continue to pray for the repose of his soul. My life has been a recurring nightmare.”
