NBA: 7 lawyers to face sanctions over conflicting court orders

The Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) has charged seven lawyers, including a Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN), to the Legal Practitioners Disciplinary Committee (LPDC) for playing roles in the issuance of conflicting orders.

The orders were in cases involving former Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Uche Secondus.

President of the NBA, Olumide Akpata said the committee set up to identify the lawyers submitted its report last month.

He said: “They are about seven in number. We are going to file a petition at the LPDC, and this will happen within the next two weeks.

“You will get their names when we file the petition. There are seven lawyers from across the country. There is a Senior Advocate among them.”

Akpata spoke in Abuja during a briefing on plans for the 2022 Justice Sector Summit scheduled for Abuja today by the NBA in collaboration with other organisations.
