Popular Nigerian comedian, Lasisi Elenu, has been called out by the Nigerian Bar Association for the way he portrays lawyers in his jokes.
In one of his viral jokes, Lasisi Elenu played the role of Atomic Bomb who is a funny lawyer.
Assistant Publicity Secretary of the Nigerian Bar Association, Akorede Habeeb Lawal while recting to the viral video wrote on Twitter saying, lawyers enjoy his (Lasisi) jokes but do not like the way he and other comedians ‘ridicules’ their noble profession.
“Dear @lasisielenu, We’ve been tagged! We beg to use you as a point of reference to all other comedians,” he wrote.
“Lawyers have awesome sense of humour, as such we enjoy your jokes & appreciate the creativity.
“However, if you must represent our profession in your works… kindly ensure you properly adorn the wig, bip & gown.
“We acknowledge your right of expression, but NOTE that we also reserve the rights to take all NECESSARY steps to guide against the ridicule of our noble profession and @NigBarAssoc shall not hesitate to exercise those rights.” he wrote.
