The Nigerian Bar Association has set up an adhoc committee to investigate the allegations of sexual assault against the suspended Dean of the Faculty of Law, University of Calabar, Prof. Cyril Ndifon.
Members of the committee are the NBA first Vice President, Linda Rose Bala, Assistant General Secretary, Daniel Kip, Chairperson of NBA Women’s Forum and the Chairman of the NBA Calabar Branch.
The NBA also filed petitions against the suspended Resident Electoral Commissioner of the Independent National Electoral Commission in Adamawa State, Hudu Yunusa-Ari and a young lawyer of Aba Branch wildly known as “the Baddest lawyer” on social media, Ifunanya Excel Grant.
While Yunusa-Ari was petitioned over his role in illegally declaring the result of the supplementary 2023 governorship election in Adamawa State as votes were still being counted, the complaints against Miss Ifunanya centred on her social media notoriety of posting pictures and videos of herself unclad and smoking marijuana.
A statement issued on Saturday by the National Publicity Secretary of NBA, Akorede Habeeb Lawal, said the decision was reached by the National Executive Committee of the body at her recent monthly meeting presided over by its President, Yakubu Chonoko Maikyau and attended by all national officers.
