A High Court sitting in Ibadan presided by Hon. Justice Owolabi has awarded the sum of N27million in favour of two lawyers, namely Stanley A. Nnabuo and Sanya Bolu(the chairman Young Lawyers Forum, Ibadan branch) who were assaulted by NSCDC officials.
According to a report, the lawyers went to NSCDC office in Ibadan to represent their client who is a husband to one of their staff.
The husband and the wife had lived separately and agreed that their daughter continues to live with the mother and come to spend holidays with the husband.
When the daughter went for holiday at her father’s place, the father failed to return the daughter to her mother.
The husband’ was invited for his failure to return the child on time and the two lawyers accompanied him to their office, on sighting them, they were beating blue black. All entreaties to them that they were lawyers fell on deaf ears.
