Evans’ Lawyer Fined N20,000 For Professional Misconduct

According to him, it is an “affront” to the court for Ogungbeje not to send another lawyer to stand in for him. “In view of this, we are of the view that the applicant’s counsel is most unserious with this application. We, therefore, ask for a punitive cost of N100,000 against the applicant and his counsel,” he said. Awarding the N20,000 cost, Justice Anka said: “Counsel wrote a letter seeking for an adjournment without copying the prosecution. This, to me, is unprofessional. The court hereby warns counsel to desist from such type of practice.” The judge said the facts before him showed that the applicant was still in police custody.
