Misconduct: Court orders NBA to probe Kwankwaso’s lawyer

A Kano High court has ordered the Nigerian Bar Association to investigate Kwankwaso’s lawyer, Okechukwu Eze for unethical misconduct. 
Justice Muhammad Yahaya while delivering a ruling on the dramatic discontinuance notice filed by Kwankwaso’s Attorney declared that the matter was filed without the consent of his client. 
Justice Muhammad Yahaya subsequently struck out the suit and awarded fifty thousand naira against the Kwankwaso lawyer.
Okechukwu Eze had dragged EFCC to court where he sought an order restraining the respondent from arresting his client in respect of a petition file by pensioners in the state. 
Subsequently,  the court ordered the status quo be maintained and therefore adjourned hearing till July 15th.
Recall that the former governor disowned  the lawyer last week in a statement signed by his Principal private seretary.
