The case of Joachim Iroko (the man who named his dog ‘Buhari’) will be coming up at the Chief Magistrate Court, Ota, Ogun State on Monday, September 19, 2016.
We are appealing to public interest/human rights lawyers across the country who are willing to be part of the Defence Team pro bono to attend the court latest 8:30 am so that their names can be written down in the Appearance List.
The Defence Team will be led by a renowned Lagos based human rights lawyer and activist, Mr. Ebun-olu Adegboruwa.
A Motion on Notice has already been filed for the charge against the Defendant to be quashed. We are contesting the constitutionality of the criminal charge and the jurisdiction of the court to entertain the matter.
Thank you for the anticipated solidarity.
Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.
