Okutepa SAN Disowns Notice To Quit, Says It Didn’t Emanate From His Office

0

A prominent Bar Leader, Mr. Jibrin Okutepa SAN has disowned a “Quit Notice” allegedly written by his former employee and bearing his office address.

Noting that “the said quit notice did not emanate from my office and could not have emanated from my office,” Okutepa added that “I am surprised to see this carrying my office name of J. S. Okutepa SAN and Co. While it is true that Mr S T Akohol was in the employment of my law firm, he left my office in 2018 to set up his law firm.”

Below is the full text of the disclaimer.

NOTICE OF DISCLAIMER
My attention has been drawn to a purported Quit Notice being circulated on social media said to have been issued and signed by S. T. Akohol Esq.

I wish to state categorically that the said quit notice did not emanate from my office and could not have emanated from my office. I am surprised to see this carrying my office name of J. S. Okutepa SAN and Co. While it is true that Mr S T Akohol was in the employment of my law firm, he left my office in 2018 to set up his law firm.

The address on the letter is not my office address. My office address in Makurdi is House 3BR/3B, No 11 Hudco Quarters High Level Makurdi Benue State.

My office was relocated to the address above on 25th January 2018 after the law firm built its office. I and my office have no ideas of the author of this badly written Quit Notice. It is an impersonation of the highest order. I am far away in Miami Florida now for IBA conference and many have drawn my attention to this letter which was not badly written but had demeaned my person and office. All letters and notices from my law firm are usually done on my office letter headed papers with the office logo.

I have accordingly instructed my colleague and Head of Chambers in Makurdi to report this to the police with a view to knowing who authored this Quit Notice.
