NBA reacts as two Lawyers fight dirty in Enugu Court room (video)

Two Lawyers engaged into a physical altercation in the Customary Court in Obukpa town, Nsukka Local Government Area of Enugu State.

Litigants and court personnel were perplexed by the attorneys’ actions.

It was unclear what caused the argument, but other attorneys and court personnel scrambled to maintain order.

The two attorneys were shown lifting chairs and shouting at the top of their lungs in a popular video that Platinum Times on Thursday.

The two lawyers, whose names have been suppressed, are both locals.

As the altercation worsened, one of the lawyers was heard saying,

“He is a very small boy… He is a mad man.”

The second lawyer warned,

“Touch me again…”

“Who touched you. Look at this mad man,” the first lawyer said.

He later started walking out of the courtroom.

“Look at you. You have bleached yourself like a fool. You have bleached yourself like a woman,” the second lawyer said to his colleague’s retreating figure.

When Platinum Times reached out to the Chairman of the Nigerian Bar Association, NBA, Nsukka branch, Barr Ferdinand Ugochukwu Ukwueze, he described the action of the lawyers as embarrassing.

“The bar is trying to find out what happened that led to that unfortunate display of some recklessness.

“We are looking into it really,” he said.

When asked whether there would be sanctions, Ukwueze answered in the affirmative.

According to him, “certainly because it doesn’t represent the nobility with which we are known.

“Once we get to the root of the matter, the bar at the national level, our disciplinary committee will step in.”
