Olumide Akpata, the outgoing President of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA), has said some lawyers who stole phones and other items at its week-long Annual General Conference will be punished.
This news medium recalls that the aggrieved legal practitioners, who did not get their conference materials on time, invaded the collection centre and looted the booths.
However, Akpata, while speaking at the conference on Friday, said some aggrieved lawyers stole phones, and bags, and beat some staff.
The NBA President stated that any lawyer found culpable for the theft of phones, and assault on officials will be punished.
“Our colleagues stole bags, phones, beat up staff because we have video evidence. We are going to get the experts to look into those videos.
“Anybody found culpable for embarrassing our association and our nation like this will definitely be sanctioned,” Akapata said.
