 Traditional worshiper attire Activist threatens to name lawyers who are confraternities members

 

Rights activist, Felix Ashimole, has threatened to name lawyers who are members of different confraternities and cult groups should any punishment be meted out on a senior lawyer, Malcolm Omoirhobo, that appeared in Supreme Court on Thursday with African traditional worshiper attire.

Ashimole, who is also a lawyer, in a post on his Facebook page (Che Oyinatumba) on Thursday, said there was nothing wrong in Omoirhobo’s appearance since the Supreme Court had ruled that there was normal to wear hijab at call to bar and in Lagos public schools.

His words : I have been tagged on this since morning but I refused to respond until I got permission from my father.

“This is good; I saw it coming.
1. When Hijab was allowed to be worn during call to Bar.
2.When Supreme Court ruled that Hijab should be allowed in Lagos Schools.

” I know I asked how about us, respecters of African ways?
Well, you cannot pick and choose the madness you will encourage.
This has my unalloyed, undiluted support!

” I am awaiting anybody that will drag him to LPDC and I will mention names of lawyers that are members of Confraternities, Cults and are in the same coven with judges!”

PlatinumPost reports that Omoirhobo, had on Thursday, caused a stir at the Supreme Court for wearing an African traditional worshippers’ attire to the court’s proceedings.

Omoirhobo stated that he wore the clothing to court to exercise his fundamental human rights following a recent judgment by the Supreme Court which permits all Nigerians to express their way of worship and the use of hijab in schools and public places.
