Lawyer Dressed As Traditionalist Attends Proceedings At Supreme Court

Says He’s Free Since The Apex Court Ruled That Muslim Students Can Wear Hijab To Schools In Lagos.

The lawyer, who was also barefoot said that a Supreme Court ruling meant Nigerians were free to dress in their religious attires.

Speaking with journalists, he said, “By the Supreme Court judgement, we have been given license to dress in our religious attires. It would be a flagrant violation of my fundamental right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion for anyone to stop me.”

Chief Omirhobo stated that since the Supreme Court has ruled last week that students could wear Hijab to schools in Lagos, that means the Court has given every religion a right to dress the way the believers wish to dress and that he has decided to dress like a traditionalist/native doctor from now on to court since the Supreme Court has given religious freedom to all religions.

According to reports, when the learned Lawyer walked into the Supreme Court, the Justices who were on seat looked up in shock, looked at themselves and without a word, went on recess.
