Kidnap Suspects No Longer To Enjoy Warri NBA’s Legal Services

Henceforth, persons charged with the offence of kidnapping in Delta state will no longer enjoy the legal services of lawyers following a recent directive by the Nigeria Bar Association, NBA, in Warri, Delta state.

This tough stance comes on the heels of the recent arrest and arraignment in court of a Warri-based lawyer and activist, Mr. Casely Omon-Irabor by the police for allegedly offering N700,000 bribe to a police officer, Inspector Samuel Imana, as bribe for him to release a kidnap suspect, Vincent Akpokona.

According to a statement  by the chair and publicity secretary, Messrs. Ben Oji and S.G Ediagbonuwie, “Any member of the branch, who provides legal representation in this case, would be a clear breach of the subsisting resolution of the branch.”

However, sources close to the arrested lawyer maintain that he was set-up although they didn’t say who is behind his travails.

The association however, declared, “Our stand does not in any way infer an acceptance of the veracity. We would expect the police, having charged the matter to court, to prove the said allegations in accordance with the provisions of the law. We shall follow the proceedings with keen interest.”
