The Nigerian Bar Association has cautioned popular Instagram comedian, Lasisi Elenu, to stop bringing the noble image of the profession to disrepute through his comedy skits.
The Assistant National Publicity Secretary, Habeeb Lawal, Monday called out the comedian on Twitter, for making lawyers look ridiculous in his creative work.
Lawal wrote: “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.”
