Facebook Share Twitter Share

Senior Advocates of Nigeria Quakers and M.J. Onigbanjo
have dragged the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and Ekiti
State governor-elect, Ayodele Fayose, to the National
Human Rights Commission NHRC,over alleged violation of
their right to practice as lawyers.

This followed the September 22 and 25 attacks at the Ekiti
High Court by suspected political thugs and alleged threats
to their lives. Quaker and Onigbanjo, who are lawyers to the
litigants challenging Fayose’s eligibility to contest in the
June 21 governorship election, addressed their petition to
the Executive Secretary of the NHRO, Prof . Bem Angwe.
The National Judicial Council (NJC) had, at its emergency
meeting on Sept 16, asked the Inspector General of Police,
Suleiman Abiah, to investigate the attack on the court and
prosecute those behind it.
