The publicity secretary of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA), Dr. Rapulu Nduka has said nobody was sent out of the NBA NEC Meeting at Ilorin. He was reacting to the video made by Mr. Felix Ashimole (Che Oyinatumba) alleging that he was walked out of the meeting by security operatives at the NEC venue in Ilorin.
Dr. Rapulu stated that to the best of his knowledge, the only issue involving Mr. Ashimole during the meeting was when the NBA President while reacting to the issue of his disqualification which was raised by Dr. Monday Ubani noted that Mr. Ashimole ought to have known that the appropriate place to direct his grievances was the ECNBA and the Electoral Appeal Committee as the NEC lacks power to interfere in their decision. He stated that these were said without rancour how so ever. He expressed shock that Mr. Ashimole would make such allegation.
On his part, Mr. Ashimole explained that he is yet to recieve any notice from the ECNBA regarding the outcome of his appeal.
He noted that after the NBA President’s falsely stated that he has been disqualified, he decide to approach Dr. Ubani to set the record straight. He said the it was at that point that an NBA staff pointed him out to the security official who approached him and escorted him.
