NIGERIA Bar Association (NBA) has warned the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Rivers state to watch its utterances against judges over perceived questionable court injunctions or have the bench to contend with.
Chairman, NBA, Port Harcourt Branch, Princew O Nyekwere, sounded the warning Monday in the Rivers State capital in response to a statement credited to the Rivers State APC Spokesman, Chief Ogbonna Nwuke.
“It has become imperative to restate that there are laid down procedures for members of the public and aggrieved parties to make complaints against conduct of any judge they perceive to be contrary to the Code of Conduct of Judicial Officers.
“We are appalled by the temerity of the APC, Rivers State to refer to some Judges of the Rivers State Judiciary as “judges being used to issue black market injunctions” amongst other execrable languages.
“While members of the public are entitled to make complaints against any earring Judge of the Rivers State Judiciary using the laid down procedures, the NBA PH Branch will not condone any disrespect, affront and intimidation against the Judges of the State Judiciary under any guise.
