A former Chairman of the Nigerian Bar Association NBA Ikorodu Branch, Mr Adedotun Adetunji has described as “highly condemnable” the recent abduction of a member of the Benin Branch of the NBA, Mr Iyoha Osobase.
Mr Osobase was reportedly kidnapped by yet to be identified persons few days ago.
According to Adetunji, the news of his abduction which filtered the air, has become “one too many” such episodes, which now calls for serious concerns from all relevenat stakeholders.
“When the news of kinap of the legal practitioner broke, it created an atmosphere of unrest and worry in the minds of some lawyers and I am no exception.
“This has become a source of serious concern for the legal community and it is now so important for adequate measures to be put in place to wade off such occurrences,” he said
Adetunji said that such episodes of wanton kidnaps should awaken public consciousness on the need for our security agencies to “rise up to the occasion” and live up to their duties of securing lives and properties in the country.
While expressing solidarity with the entire members of the NBA Benin Branch, he urged all legal practitioners to treat issues of security with rapt attention.
