INVASION OF JUSTICE ODILI’S RESIDENCE: YLF’s Hussaini Applauds Maikyau’s Stance


I have read with delight the brave and terse statement made by Mr. YC Maikyau, SAN on the invasion of the residence of my lord, Hon. Justice Mary Peter-Odili. The incident is a clarion call on lawyers and people of conscience to protect the sanctity of the judiciary. When the privacy and sanctuary of the custodians of the scale of justice is unjustifiably desecrated, it calls for the brave amongst us to speak in defense of justice and democracy.

As rightly said by the learned silk, this invasion is indeed one too many, and an intimidation of not just the judicial arm of government which serves as the last hope of the common man, but of the entire citizenry as aptly put by Mr. Maikyau, SAN, and I wholeheartedly agree, as a member of a noble profession. I also ally myself with the able leadership of our President of the NBA, Mr. Olumide Akpata, as he competently moves towards remedying the situation and ensuring that all the culprits involved in this ugly incident are brought to book.
