The Legal Practitioners’ Privileges Committee has withdrawn the nomination of a lawyer, Ikhide Ehighelua, exalted rank of the Senior Advocate of Nigeria and suspended from applying for the rank for the next five years starting from 2019.

The decision was adopted at the emergency meeting of LPPC on Thursday,

This is coming barely four days to the swearing-in with other 30 Lawyers fixed for Monday in Abuja.

In a statement issued on  Thursday evening by the Chief Registrar of the Supreme Court and Secretary to the committee, Mrs. Hadizatu Mustapha, the LPPC, said it took the decision following a “meritorious” petition accusing him of obtaining an ex parte order of interim injunction in a manner that violated the guidelines for the conferment of SAN rank.

The LPPC in its findings specifically concluded that the lawyer “knowingly engaged in gross abuse of court process” in relation to obtaining the interim court order.
