Mike Ozekhome (SAN) Reportedly DISGRACED At The 14th Gani Fawehinmi Annual Symposium

There was a mild drama on Monday in Lagos during the 14th Gani Fawehinmi Annual Lecture when protesters booed Mr. Mike Ozekhome, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN) who was scheduled to speak. 








The protesters made up of youths, shouted “ole, ole, ole Mike Ozekhome’’ and physically tried to restrain and bar the SAN from entering the venue.


They alleged that the SAN was defending corrupt individuals in court and as a result, shielded them from justice. His presence here is an insult to the memory of Chief Gani Fawehinmi. It had to take the intervention of Mr. Adeshina Ogunlana, the Chairman of Ikeja branch of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA), Mr. Femi Falana (SAN) and Mr. Mohammed Fawehinmi to douse tension.


Meanwhile, Ozekhome, in his contributory address said “Gani was against oppression, repression and tyranny in whatever form. I am just coming now from the court, where the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) wanted to freeze the account of a citizen via exparte. I just stopped them again for the 20th time, I will continue to fight the government which looks the other way when corruption is recorded in their system.


I have told Mr. Magu three times to prosecute at least one person in their government so that we can show that corruption is being fought. The Shiites that were mowed down during their protests, the massacre in Southern Kaduna, Enugu State and so many other incidents are as a result of lack of true federalism and restructuring.


Responding to the chants of “lies, lies, lies’’ during his speech, the SAN told the protesters “you cannot intimidate me, you are all hired’.

  6. It annoys me whenever someone says "a lawyer is defending corrupt politicians"! Like seriously! How daft can people be! The rules guiding the legal profession allows every lawyer to defend everyone irrespective of the case at hand! It doesnt matter if the person is a thief or a murderer..you must defend that person. The only objection to that rule is if it is against your personal or religious beliefs amongst others, then you can decline! I suggest some of you should read up on matters like this before picking up your phone to type what you dont know. Thank you!
