A Nigerian legal practitioner has taken to social media to lament after he was allegedly ousted from the Ikeja Bar Association WhatsApp group over a derogatory statement the NURTW Chairman in Lagos, Musiliu Akinsanya, popularly known as MC Oluomo.
In a post shared via X, the lawyer with username @monsieur_avril referred to a news story describing the leader of the Lagos State chapter of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) as an ‘executive thug’.
Expressing anger over the removal, the lawyer said anyone who speaks against the verdict of the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal (PEPT) or argues against the emergency patriot of the Judiciary risks being removed.
He wrote: “Ronu Pipo has taken NBA Ikeja WhatsApp platform. If you speak against the PEPT judgement or argue against the emergency patriot of the Judiciary on the group. They tag it as aspersion against the Judiciary, and you risk being removed.”
