What is happening in Nigeria? What kind of impunity is this? Emeka Ephraim Ugwuonye, Lawyer to the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu has been temporarily banned from legal practice in Nigeria.

Ugwuonye, who was a former United States-based lawyer, recently joined the legal team of Nnamdi Kanu. He relocated to Nigeria after he was disbarred in New York and Maryland for professional misconduct.

It was learnt that Ugwuonye was barred in Nigeria by Nigeria’s Legal Practitioners Disciplinary Committee, LPDC, of the Body of Benchers, a unit which punishes misconduct among lawyers. LPDC ordered Chief Registrar of the Supreme Court of Nigeria to strike out Ugwuonye’s name.

J.S. Okutepa (SAN) who is the Chief Prosecutor of the Nigeria Bar Association (NBA) at the LPDC found Ugwuonye liable for fraud and promised to give details of the direction of LPDC in due course.
