VITAL OBITER: The Diary of a Roving Public Lawyer: FROM ABUJA WITH PAIN(DIVERSION)

It is the 6th of December and I am airborne and our phones are disabled according to the instructions of the powers that are in charge of the air.

‘Carbin crew prepare for landing,’ the sonorous voice of one of the cabin ladies signals that we are about to hit the Lagos ground.

As my phone comes back to life, the news breaks the phone: the Temple of Justice, Abuja, where I am coming from is under desecration and the presiding minister in the temple loses one of her shoes while trying to escape the invasion of the operatives of the State Security Service…

SOWORE is the attraction of the men of Security Service to the Temple of Justice to strip it of its hallowness and what it represents as an independent institution…

The attack on the Temple of Justice is an attack by government on itself. It is the case of a house divided against itself, which shall not stand…

When you attack yourself with the aim of snuffing life out of yourself, it is called suicide…

It is reported that the ministers in the Temple of Justice present are caught unawares of the intention of the state to commit this open harakiri…

I don’t know what SOWORE did o, that the state losses all hope for due process and civilized conducts and kills itself cheap like this…

Is the state not committing same offence they are accusing SOWORE of?

At least what SOWORE is accused of doing is at best an attempt, which is only fuelled by the machinery of state propaganda. But is the state’s action not an accomplished act of terror against itself and the inhabitants of its space before the full glare of the whole wide world? Abi eyin eyan, am I yarning dust? Please let me know o. This is the beauty of keeping a public diary o…

A government weakens itself when it employs anarchy to weaken it’s institutions…

I don’t see repentance in the eyes of this government o…The Vice President seems, who appears to show anything that resembles something like remorse…How? In rejecting an award, he cited the invasion of the Temple of Justice as one of the reasons. Though the Vice President is yet to cite same a a basis to down tools. I just hope I am not concluding too fast…That may just be in the works…Our God works in mysterious ways and being a senior minister in the Temple of Justice, the VP may just be planning to wash his nets…

I am a young man of 49, born March 24, 1970 into the military government of General Yakubu Gowon…Wait o, are we permitted to call retired Generals, Generals? Because, I don’t know again o as I do not want to be PUNCHed…Well, I think since the name is Yakubu Gowon and he is not in power, I can still call him General and escape being accused of HATE PUNCHing…

As I am saying o jare, from age 9 to 13, there was Sagari’s democracy, which General(sorry President) Buhari removed from power like jiga…I don’t think I smelt Ijoba Alagbada again until General Obasanjo in 1999…For those who know simple arithmetic, 25 years of my life is full military and 24 is (psuedo) democracy…But in all put together, please correct me if I am wrong o, I have not seen the Temple of Justice invaded and desecrated in the dimension of the last Friday and it’s orders treated like inferior tissue paper…

Ominu n ko mi eyin eyan…This is oro sunnukun o…I need you to borrow me your oju sunnukun…Please o, where is the man called Usoro? The Oga patapata of all the sect of the ministers in the Temple of Justice, known as lawyers? Is he silent as he would not want to be PUNCHed? Has the BAR now barred itself from standing up to be counted in the fight to restore the DIGNITY of the BENCH? BENCH? That is where we call where judges sit.

Well, USORO may not soro now o, but I am comforted that a man is coming. His name is Adesina OGUNLANA, Serubawon Jigijigi…He brings the Radical Agenda to the Nigerian Bar…

I think the space in this Vital Obiter diary is filled now and I beg to close it and next week I will talk to you about my real Particulars of Pain from Abuja…This pain is bigger than this SOWORE saga but it is just that this SOWORE matter constitute an immediate threat…

Thank you for taking the pain to read the DIVERSION of FROM ABUJA WITH PAIN…Next you will read the VITAL…

Do have an INSPIRED weekend.

Here is your Dearly Beloved Roving Public Lawyer, Taiwo AKINLAMI
