NBA President Blasts IG Over Comments


The newly elected president of the Nigerian Bar Association, NBA, Dr. Joseph Dauda, has  blasted the Inspector-General of Police, Ogbonna Onovo over his refusal to obey a court  order.

Dauda said that it was unfortunate that the IG, who is  a public officer, was giving the  impression that he was above the law.

“If, indeed, the IG made the statement that he was still waiting for the person that will  come to arrest him, that  nobody could arrest him as ordered by the court amounts to abuse  of office.”

The NBA president stated this at the launch of a book by a Lagos lawyer and human rights  activist, Femi Falana in Lagos yesterday.

The 351-page book titled Fundamental Rights Enforcement in Nigeria, was the second edition  written by Falana. The first edition was writtein in 2005.
