Abuja lawyer in ‘babalawo’ costume to Supreme Court

A Abuja-based lawyer dressed in his ‘babalawo’ garb attended proceedings at the Supreme Court, Abuja on Thursday.

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

Speaking with the 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.”
