BOOM ? WHERE DO WE GO FROM HERE? Justice Akinola Aguda (late) offers insights!
Justice Akinola Aguda, of the blessed memory said in 1978 when handling a case in which a lawyer was found guilty:
“Because you are a lawyer, who is supposed to know better, I will give you the maximum punishment prescribed under this act.
I want lawyers, and judges to know that if politicians can fail the society, military can fail the society, lawyers cannot afford to fail the society or else we are all doomed. We should not drag sentiment into law. No matter the people’s nomenclature, tribe, religion, we should be guided by the law”.
