NBA Drags SAN, Seven Other Lawyers To Disciplinary Committee

The Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) has dragged a Senior Advocate of Nigeria, (SAN) and seven other lawyers to Legal Practitioners Disciplinary Committee, (LPDC) for aiding the abuse of Court Processes that resulted in the conflicting court orders from Courts that embarrassed the Judiciary recently.

It will be recalled that some months ago, a number of conflicting orders relating to political matters, were obtained from several courts of coordinate jurisdiction.

The NJC has since sanctioned the Judges found culpable, while the NBA set up a three man committee to conduct some investigation in order to find out the legal practitioners involved in the forum shopping.

“Upon the conclusion of the investigation of the Committee, the NBA has now caused six (6) petitions to be sent to the Legal Practitioners Disciplinary Committee. The other 2 petitions will be filed soon.

The legal practitioners involved include:

Henry Adedayo Bello
Abubakar Abdullahi
Mba Ukweni SAN
Chibuzor C. Ezike Esq.
Christagonus Okechi Nkoku
Ezea Ferdinand.
M. Iyke-Iweajunwa (Mrs)
Chief Jude Okeke of APGA was a Defendant in 3 of the cases investigated.
He caused cases to be instituted against him in the High Courts of Jigawa, FCT and Imo State in connivance with the Claimants and their Counsel.
