Days to conferment, lawyer stripped of SAN nomination

Four days to his inauguration as a Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN), Ehighelua lkhide has
been stripped of the nomination.

The Legal Practitioners’ Privileges Committee (LPPC), on Thursday, reversed its decision to include the lawyer on the list of those to be formally conferred with the rank on Monday.

LPPC said its decision was informed by its finding that the lawyer “knowingly engaged in gross abuse of court process.” The LPPC also barred Ikhide from applying for the SAN rank for the next five years.
