Do You Believe that Litigants Use “Juju”? Lawyers on Twitter Share Their Experiences

0

It all started with this tweet question by a lawyer with the twitter handle Segun Legal:

Lawyers, can we share experience of Juju been used against us, our clients or our witnesses. I’ve experienced and heard bad things in this profession. Thank God for Life.

Well, Lawyers responded with different tales; some hilarious others thought provoking.

Enjoy!

If U ever go to Igbosere HC (at the entrance) at a convenient time; no space for parking sometimes, there’s a sacrifice waiting for an unknown person either judge, counsel or litigant. Lol

On one criminal matter, the witness testifying was dictating for a paper, my boss then called the attention of the Judge to it…… They searched everywhere no paper

the judge was so furious with my boss. You have to be strong as a Lawyer.

I did a matter at the court 2 Oyo. One of d trial days, I left my hotel early and got to court as early as 7:30. The a call came in from a private number who warned me not to shake hands with anyone in court on that day. Few minutes after the claimants came in and as usual I bow
Less than 30minutes after the court started sitting, my client (the one that shook the man’s hand) started groaning in pain and that particular hand became very big more like elephantiasis.
