Evans Lawyer Fined N20K For Professional Misconduct After Missing Kidnapper's Hearing
Friday July 14, 2017 - Evans Lawyer Fined N20K For Professional Misconduct After Missing Kidnapper's Hearing Billioanire kidnapper Evans’ lawyer Olukoya Ogungbeje was on Thursday slammed N20,000 “punitive cost” for professional misconduct after he missed an hearing. Justice Abdulazeez Anka of the Federal High Court, Lagos, said the cost must be paid before July 20. Evans’ fundamental rights case was billed to be heard by the Judge, but his lawyer wrote, claiming to be ill. Ogungbeje apologised for his absence and asked for adjournment. But, Mr Emmanuel Eze, who represented Lagos State Commissioner of Police, opposed Ogungbeje’s application for adjournment.
