DEBORAH YAKUBU: NBA POSTPONES SPIDEL SOKOTO CONFAB
The Nigerian Bar Association has postponed its NBA Section on Public Interest and Development Law (NBA-SPIDEL) Annual Conference earlier scheduled to kick-off this weekend in Sokoto, saying it is “not only for the safety of our conferees and guests, but as a mark of respect for the memory of the slain Miss Deborah Yakubu.”
In a statement made available to CITY LAWYER, the lawyers’ association expressed worry “not just by the chilling news of the murder of Miss Deborah Yakubu, but also by the sudden and sad turn of events and the deteriorating security situation in Sokoto State.”
Continuing, the statement personally signed by NBA President, Mr. Olumide Akpata, added: “As such, having critically reviewed the current security condition in Sokoto, it has become apparent that we cannot guarantee the safety of our guest speakers, delegates and other stakeholders that have committed to attend the NBA-SPIDEL’s conference which was designed to put the State in the global spotlight for the duration of the conference and beyond. Accordingly, the Executive Committee of NBA-SPIDEL came to the painful decision to request, and I have approved, that the 2022 NBA-SPIDEL Annual Conference be postponed not only for the safety of our conferees and guests, but as a mark of respect for the memory of the slain Miss Deborah Yakubu.
