Abdulrazaq Akorede, Esq Narrates How Lawyers Hurried Out Of Court When Judge Threatened To Search Them For Charms


An Ilorin based lawyer and former commissioner for Water Resources, Abdulrazaq Sheu Akorede, has recounted how lawyers in one of the divisions in Kwara state rushed out of court when the presiding judge threatened to conduct a search on them for charms



Akorede, who was a one time aspirant to the Kwara State House of Assembly, disclosed it during an interview with the Acting Editor of the National Pilot



According to him, it happened 25 years ago. He said, “While we were in court in one of the divisions in Kwara, the case was called and the parties were all present. But the judge then made an announcement that whosoever that has a diabolical object with him should go out of the court to purge himself.


“I felt it was a bit insulting to me for the judge to have made such public pronouncement because I was wondering what could have warranted such a statement. But despite the learned judge’s plea, nobody obeyed him then the last time he repeated it, he announced he was going to go for a search.


“Surprisingly, I saw many of the lawyers hurried out of the court to purge themselves of the charms they had brought. Though I know such practice exists, but I have never seen such scenario before throughout my practice for people to have the very strong believe that they have to put something in their pockets to win or influence cases. It took some minutes before they returned to the court and we commenced hearing.”


Akorede is a 1991 graduate of Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria. Upon completion of School in 1992 he was called to the Bar the same year. In 1993, he started his practice at a law firm in Oshogbo before coming down to Ilorin to join Saka Isau & Co. (SAN). In 1995 he established his own law firm, Abdulrazaq Shehu & Co (Akorede Chambers) in Ilorin.


Akorede said the charm incident is still fresh in his memory and most of this involved are still alive while others are late.


According to him, they don’t have shame. They even demand for the charms whenever it mistakenly falls from their pockets.


“Up till now, that incident still remains very baffling and strange to me. And there are some lawyers who are still alive today and some are dead that we used to witness drop off diabolic object from their body during cases right in court.


“The irony is that they don’t even express any shame or remorsefulness about it as if it is the norm. They even demand for any of such objects which mistakenly dropped from their body or pockets openly while in court with pride.”
