Kano NBA Denies Writing Petition Against Commissioner Of Police, Wakil


The Kano State Branch of NBA has denied writing the petition circulating against the Commissioner of Police Kano Command, Mr Muhammad Wakil.
In a press release made available to TheNigeriaLawyer (TNL) dated 15th March, 2019 signed by the Kano NBA Secretary, Mujtaba Adamu Ameen LL.M, it stated that one Muhammad Zubair of NGO Lawyers For Sustainable Democracy in Nigeria has on the 12th March, 2019 issued out a press release containing a petition against the Commissioner of Police Kano Command.
That the said Muhammad Zubair is neither a registered member of Kano NBA Branch nor acting on behalf or under instruction of the Bar at any given time.
Therefore, the NBA categorical described the circulated information as false and that the NBA did not and had no intention to file any petition whatsoever against the Commissioner of Police. NBA further stated that any lawyer who issues press statement does that in his own personal capacity.
Lastly, it stated that a press statement from the NBA should clearly show that it is from the Nigerian Bar Association either from the National Body or the Branch because it is the only unifying body for all lawyers.
