The rot in Nigeria’s judiciary is taking a new direction as a senior Nigerian lawyer, Joseph Nwobike was on Monday, April 30, convicted on several counts of attempting to pervert justice.
Nwobike, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN), was convicted by the Ikeja Division of the Lagos High Court.
Justice Raliat Adebiyi, however, found the lawyer not guilty on offences of offering gratification to a judicial officer and making false declaration to an officer of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC. Nwobike is being prosecuted by the EFCC.
