NBA confirms looting of conference materials by lawyers


By Ismail Auwal

Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) has confirmed a viral video of the looting of the association’s conference materials at the collection centre by lawyers. 

The NBA president, President Olumide Akpata, while confirming the viral video said that any lawyer found complicit in the viral video would be prosecuted.

“I hereby assure the generality of Nigerian legal practitioners that any lawyer found complicit in vandalisation of conference booths, theft of phones, assault on officials will be prosecuted,” he said.

The NBA president, who explained the circumstances surrounding the delay in the distribution of the conference materials to members at once, ascribed the development to the poor quality of the bags.

He said this was the reason the association rejected them.

Akpata said the decision was taken to ensure that the lawyers got the best quality of the bags for the conference.

“No one said we will not encounter difficulties in life. But the hallmark is how quickly do we resolve such difficulties?” he queried.
