Nigerian Bar Association threatens to sue Lasisi Elenu over 'misrepresenting lawyers' in his skit

Instagram Comedian Lasisi Elenu, whose real name is Nosa Afolabi may be dragged to court by the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) for "ridiculing lawyers" in one of his skits.

The Assistant National Publicity Secretary of The Nigerian Bar Association, NBA, Habeeb Lawal, Esq, has called out comic actor on how he portrays lawyers in his comedy videos.

Lasisi Elenu who is always spot on with his funny videos that gets fans rolling with laughter, recently added a new character to his acting.

The character, a lawyer called ‘Atomic Bomb’ is always seen having a funny exchange or shouting at his clients.

Habib called out Lasisi after he posted a new video of ‘Atomic Bomb’ on his social media pages.

According to him, NBA was tagged to the video, and if Lasisi must represent their profession in his works, he should kindly ensure he properly adorns their attire, else they shall not hesitate to take necessary steps against him.

“Dear @lasisielenu,
We’ve been tagged!
We beg to use you as a point of reference to all other comedians.
Lawyers have awesome sense of humour, as such we enjoy your jokes & appreciate the creativity.

However, if you must represent our profession in your works…

kindly ensure you properly adorn the wig, bip & gown.

We acknowledge your right of expression, but NOTE that we also reserve the rights to take all NECESSARY steps to guide against the ridicule of our noble profession and @NigBarAssoc shall not hesitate to exercise those rights.” he wrote.
