Constitutional lawyer and Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Ebun-Olu Adegboruwa, says he doesn’t feel proud to be a lawyer right now.
Mr. Adegboruwa spoke against the backdrop of today’s drama inside the court where some Department of Security Services operatives attempted to re-arrest Sahara Reporters publisher and Revolution Now convener, Omoyele Sowore.
Sowore, it would be recalled, had been in detention for over 100 days. He was, however, released to his lawyer, Femi Falana, SAN, only yesterday. And now this.
Taking to his FB to register his displeasure over the action of the security operatives, Adegboruwa had insisted that the “DSS CANNOT BE ABOVE THE LAW!
“This is lawlessness at its peak, for operatives of DSS to storm a courtroom where there is a presiding judge to arrest Omoyele Sowore, right inside the courtroom.
“It was reported that the presiding judge was chased away with guns and the whole courtroom is in pandemonium right now.
“I don’t feel proud to be a lawyer right now at all, let alone being a citizen of a country of lawless officers of the law who are shaming the law.
“We must rise up and kick against this evil.”
