Drama in Anambra Court as Lawyer Dressed as Priest
It was a dramatic moment yesterday at the Okpoko magistrate court in the Ogbaru Local Government Area, near Onitsha, Anambra State, when proceedings were disrupted as a lawyer, identified as Ogbachalu Goshenwho appeared in court dressed in full priest robes, looking like a reverend.
The court proceedings, presided by Her Worship CB Mbaegbu, were on until a matter was called up and Goshen announced his appearance as a defence counsel.
When the Magistrate told him he cannot appear and address the court in that regalia, he objected, citing the recent Supreme Court judgement that gave female students the backing to wear hijab in public schools as a precedent.
As the Magistrate stood her ground that he cannot appear in her court in that mode of dressing, Goshen also insisted that it was his right and that the objection by the Magistrate was an infringement on his fundamental rights as enshrined in Section 38 of the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
The case was later adjourned indefinitely since the judge refused to allow the lawyer.
