Edo NBA bars lawyers from defending kidnap, robbery suspects

The Nigeria Bar Association (NBA), Benin Branch, on Thursday, barred its members from defending persons charged with the grievous and felonious offences of kidnapping and armed robbery.The branch made this known in a communiqué signed by its Chairman, Collins Ogiegbaen, and Secretary, Pius Oiwoh.The association said it is withdrawing its services from all suspects whose offences are related to kidnapping against the background of incessant cases of kidnap and attempted kidnap of its members.
“In this regard and for purposes of emphasis, the branch resolves that all lawyers registered with it are forthwith prohibited from appearing for kidnap suspects either at the police station or in any court within the state.

Consequently, any member of the bar found flouting the resolution/directive shall be heavily sanctioned accordingly,” the communiqué said.
