@rogbennett : What must that have felt like for
2 Billion Naira Libel Suit: Senator Shehu Sani’s Lawyers knock El-Rufai’s For Unethical Conducts, 
*Urge Him To Obey Pending Courts Judgments.

(Legal Practitioners & Notary Public)
4, Abiriba Close, Garki,
☎+234 (0) 803 315 4349


We were today briefed by Senator Shehu Sani (Our Client) of a media report of a 2Billion Naira libel suit allegedly filed at the Kaduna State High Court, Kaduna by His Excellency, Nasir El-Rufai, the Governor of Kaduna State as the Plaintiff and against our client as the Defendant. 

Having not been properly served and fully abreast of the Rules & Ethics of our profession we at this moment will not join issue with the Governor through the media.

Away from the suit, we however take exception to the patently adopted unethical practice of the Governor’s Attorney, particular being a senior member of the Bar, (Senior Advocate) who should know better the implication of taking recourse to the media to broadcast the notice of the pending suit to our client, the procedure adopted by the counsel to say the least is unethical, unprofessional and uncharitable particularly when record has shown that there is no court order for substituted service against our client. 

We have therefore advice our client accordingly and have assured him of the likely sanction of those found wanting in the circumstance.

As ministers in the Temple of Justice and committed to fast-tracking of justice in our Society, we heartily commend the Plaintiff in the suit for his belief in our Judiciary system and for not taking law into his hands. 

In the same vein, we equally pray that as a further assurance of His Excellency’s premium on our court he should immediately obey and or comply with all other judgments and rulings of our court against him. 

We express our total commitment to the rule of law as we will continue to render our moral and  prescribed duties to our clients, our society and the Court for common good.

Dated 23rd February, 2018
