IBADAN, Nigeria (VOICE OF NAIJA) – A Nigerian lawyer has taken to social media to lament about his removal from the Ikeja Bar Association WhatsApp group over a derogatory statement he made about the leader of the Lagos State chapter of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW), Musiliu Akinsanya, popularly known as MC Oluomo.
In a post shared via X, the lawyer with username @monsieur_avril on the WhatsApp group described the All Progressives Congress (APC) chieftain,
as an ‘executive thug’.
Expressing anger over the removal, the lawyer said anyone who speaks against the verdict of the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal (PEPT) or argues against the emergency patriot of the Judiciary risks being removed.
He wrote: “Ronu Pipo has been taken off the NBA Ikeja WhatsApp platform. If you speak against the PEPT judgement or argue against the emergency patriot of the Judiciary on the group. They tag it as aspersion against the Judiciary, and you risk being removed.”
His post has generated mixed reactions on the social media platform.
