Nigerian Bar Association to take action against comedian Lasisi Elenu

Habeeb Lawal, the Assistant National Publicity Secretary of the Nigerian Bar Association, NBA, has said that action might be taken against comedian Lasisi Elenu over a video he made.

The video showed Lasisi Elenu playing the role of a lawyer which, according to Lawal, wasn't the right representation of their profession.

He tweeted: "Dear @lasisielenu, We've been tagged! We beg to use you as a point of reference to all other comedians. Lawyers have an awesome sense of humour, as such, we enjoy your jokes & appreciate the creativity.

"However, if you must represent our profession in your works kindly ensure you properly adorn the wig, bip & gown. We acknowledge your right of expression, but NOTE that we also reserve the rights to take all NECESSARY steps to guide against the ridicule of our noble profession and @NigBarAssoc shall not hesitate to exercise those rights".
