A Senior lawyer and human rights activist, Jibrin Samuel Okutepa SAN have caution the danger faced by the legal profession and our democracy as a result of what he refers to as “legal touts” who stops at nothing with frivolous applications and cases before Courts.

 

According to Okutepa SAN, in his verified Twitter handle: @jibrinSAN. if this is not checked, then, we’re in for perdition.

 

“The way some lawyers have turned

themselves into legal touts and happily

filing frivolous applications and cases

before our courts in Nigeria should be

taken up and dealt with decisively if we

are not to say good by to democracy and

the legal profession in Nigeria.”

 

He decried this unprofessional attitude and proffer that it should be nipped in the bud and call for help.

 

“How can a lawyer file a motion and

or application for change of counsel

without reference to his colleagues who

were in the matter and who prepared

and filed the case in the first place.

Where are we heading to. This country

needs help. God help us. We are heading

to perdition,” he said.
