In a decisive move to curb the rising menace of illegal legal activities, the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA), Ibadan branch, orchestrated a targeted raid on Tuesday.

 The Anti-Touting and Ethics Committee, led by the formidable trio of NBA Ibadan Chairman, Mrs. Folasade Aladeniyi; Secretary, Mr. Olakunle Akintola; and Anti-Touting Committee Chairman, Mr. Segun Popoola, spearheaded the operation.

The crackdown focused on individuals engaged in the unauthorized practice of law, touting, and the illicit preparation of legal documents within the court premises across the Ibadan metropolis.

 Court premises at Iyaganku, Mapo, Gate, and Iwo Road Courts witnessed the meticulous sweep, resulting in the apprehension of 27 suspects found deeply entrenched in the illicit production of legal papers.

The NBA Ibadan’s proactive stance underscores their commitment to upholding the integrity of the legal profession and ensuring the sanctity of court environments. Mrs. Folasade Aladeniyi, expressing the association’s determination, stated, “We will not tolerate any activities that tarnish the image of the legal profession.

 This operation is a clear message that we are resolute in maintaining the highest ethical standards.”

The raid sends a strong warning to those attempting to exploit legal loopholes and engage in nefarious activities within court premises.

 The collaboration between the NBA Ibadan and its Anti-Touting and Ethics Committee demonstrates a united front against the erosion of legal ethics.

The arrested suspects will face legal consequences for their involvement in unlawful practices.

 The NBA Ibadan has vowed to work closely with relevant authorities to ensure a thorough investigation and prosecution, sending a deterrent message to others involved in similar activities.

As the legal community in Ibadan braces for the aftermath of this bold operation, the NBA remains steadfast in its commitment to preserving the honor and integrity of the legal profession, reinforcing the principle that justice must be served within the bounds of the law.
