Abia Tribunal: Otti’s star witness reaffirms being a lawyer

Nweke, who appeared at the Tribunal last week, to give evidence in support of the APGA governorship candidate in the last election, had come under attacks, particularly by Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) supporters in state, over his claim that he is a lawyer, alleging that his name was not on the roll of the Nigerian Law School. However, in a statement he signed, a copy of which was obtained by Daily Sun, Nweke said, “I am not only a lawyer, I am a Barrister of the highly esteemed Inn Temple, a former Justice for the Inner London Commission of the Peace, a former chairman in the Inner London Youth Court.” Nweke, who contested the Abia North Senatorial seat on the platform of APGA against the former governor of Abia State, Chief T.A Orji, in this year’s election, further stated: “I sat at the Inner London Family Court sitting in Wells Street, London. “I was part of a panel that heard Appeals from decisions of Magistrates on Youth Court Criminal matters at the Inner London Crown Court sitting in Sessions House.” The former APGA senatorial candidate, who said he holds an LLB degree in Law and a Masters degree in Development Studies from universities in the United Kingdom, said it was ignorance to think that only the Nigerian Law School calls people to the Bar.]]>
