Lasisi Elenu

By Emmanuel Okogba

The Nigerian Bar Association asked popular social media comedian Lasisi Elenu to be careful in how he represents the profession in his line of work.

The multi-talented comedian who portrays different characters in his sketches recently added being a lawyer to his catalog.

Lasisi adds humor to his imaginary court proceedings with very strong words while quoting non-existent parts of the constitution.

In response to his latest video, Habeeb Lawal, Assistant Secretary for National Publicity for the Nigerian Bar Association, wrote: “Please use it as a reference point for all other comedians. Lawyers have a great sense of humor, that’s why we enjoy your jokes and appreciate creativity.

“However, if you must represent our profession in your jobs, be sure to properly adorn the wig, beep, and dress.

“We recognize your right of expression, but WE KEEP IN MIND that we also reserve the right to take all necessary measures to guide ourselves against the ridicule of our noble profession and @NigBarAssoc will not hesitate to exercise those rights.

“In the unlikely event that you need a guide on how to make a lawyer prank without ridiculing our appearance, here is a good guide.”

Irrelevant position

Social media users who joined the conversation believe that there are issues affecting the legal profession that are more serious than the way a wig and beep are worn.

Ifade Olusegun @OlusegunIfade reacting to Habeeb’s position wrote “Irrelevant position! There are major issues affecting your profession that your NBA may face, such as paying the attorney 30-50k monthly … rather than specializing in minors.”

In support of Olusegun’s comment, SoccerYard @Kayojek wrote: “And they may try to remove that wig on their confused heads. This is 2020!

Another user xeenarh @xeenarh wrote: “I hope you are not speaking on behalf of the NBA. Because as a member of the NBA, I recognize comedy and this unnecessary positioning of yours and trying to criticize the police is inappropriate. ”
