Yes. Most SANs are Yorubas.

The first lawyer in Nigeria was a Yoruba man.
Out of the first 3 SANs in Nigeria, 2 are Yorubas.
Out of the first 10 SANs, 8 are Yorubas.

In fact, before the first SE lawyer became an SAN, the SW had produced 8 SANs and the SS had produced 2 SANs respectively.

Where do you find most SE lawyers? Under the fruit trees in court and in bus stops arguing politics.
Yorubas and lies.
The first batch of SANs were appointed in March, 1975, 5 years after the Civil war. So any sensible man won't expect a SEner to make the list after coming out from war.

3 years later when the second batch were appointed in Dec, 1978, 4 Igbomen made the list out of 13. That is 31%. They were appointed along side Awolowo. So I don't know where u got the idea that Yorubas produced 8 SANs before Ndi Igbo.

Next year when the 3rd batch were appointed, out of 5 appointed Ndi Igbo got 2. That is 40%.

Since then, Ndi Igbo are always represented in any batch.

Stop deceiving yourself.

You get time to quote that idiotic lazy tribalist! His only job in life is to look for any thread about Igbos to spread his bitterness.Though you're right to correct his idiocy.

Stop talking arant nonsense...

We all know the role politics plays on the conferment of SANship in this country.

It smacks of atavistic/primeval chauvinism for you to rub the aftermath of patent inequity to the faces of rather disinclined victims...

How can a person stayed in an apartment for 9 good years without pay a dime? A lawyer for that matter, a woman, may be mother self. This is bad for her profession and womanhood. it is condemnable and she deserved the punishment.

Kunle Ogunba is a scam and a perfect example of everything that is wrong with Nigeria.

He has been a scammer fleasing debtors/shareholders in conjunction with Nigerian banks since the early 2000s.

MKO4ever:
The Legal Practitioners Privileges Committee, LPPC, on Thursday announced the withdrawal of the title of Senior Advocate of Nigeria from two lawyers for misconduct.

In a statement signed by its secretary, Hadiza Mustapha, the committee said the first affected lawyer, Oluwatoyin Bashorun, would not be allowed to re-apply for the position till after three years.

According to the statement, the other lawyer, Kunle Ogunban has been relinquished of all privileges attached to the title.

“At the last Emergency Meeting which was held on September, 15 2017; the Legal Practitioners’ Privileges Committee by virtue of Section 5 (1) of the Legal Practitioners Act CAP L11, Laws of the Federation of Nigeria. 2004 as amended, decided to suspend the oonferment of the rank of Senior Advocate of Nigeria on Oluwatoyin Ajoke Bashorun Esq. pending the investigation of all petitions filed against her.

“This is to further notify the General Public that after a thorough investigation of the petition by the sub-committee set up by the Legal Practitioners’ Privileges Committee (at which the Respondent was given a fair hearing) it was decided that the petition is meritorious. Consequently, the Legal Practitioners’ Privileges Committee at its 129th Plenary Meeting has withdrawn the rank of Senior Advocate of Nigeria from Kunle Ogunba Esq. and all other privileges attached to the rank forthwith.”

According to the statement, the guidelines for the conferment of the title which Mr. Bashorun was found wanting in complying with include the following:

“The candidate must be of good character and must have no pending disciplinary case or complaint relating to professional misconduct against him. A candidate shall he considered ineligible if in the opinion of the Legal Practitioners’ Privileges Committee the candidate is adjudged to be of the following disposition:

“Bad behaviour, whether in or out of Court; poor temperament or propensity to insult or assault people or cause them harm or put them in a state of fear of bodily harm;

“Evidence of moral depravity or other socially unacceptable behaviour; 19(I) A candidate must:

“Demonstrate high professional and personal integrity; b. Be honest and straightforward in all his professional/personal dealings,c. Be of good character and reputation; d. Be candid with clients and professional colleagues.”

“This is to notify the General Public that after a thorough investigation of the petition, the sub-committee as setup by the Legal Practitioners’ Privdeges Committee (at which the Applicant was given a fair hearing) at its 129m Plenary Meeting upheld the recommendations of the subcommittee to wit:

“That the petitioner’s petition is meritorious, having found that the respondent stayed and continued to stay in a rented property for nine years without paying rent.

“That Oluwatoyin Ajoke Bashorun Esq. being an officer in the temple of Justice and an aspirant to the exalted position of Senior Advocate of Nigeria has conducted herself in a manner which is clearly in contravention of the provisions of paragraphs 18(2) (a) & (c) and 19 (a) (b) (c) & (d) of the,” the statement said.

Regarding Mr. Ogumba, the statement said thus:

“Honeywell Group petitioned Kunle Ogunba SAN alleging professional misconduct against him. The misconduct allegedly consists of the institution of multiplicity of proceedings before different judges of the Federal High Court on the same subject with the deliberate aim of abusing the process of court and derailing the course of justice.
