Former Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) General Secretary, Mazi Afam Osigwe has successfully brokered peace among warring factions in the intractable face-off among NBA Nyanya/Karu Branch arrow-heads.

According to a communique made available to CITY LAWYER on the recent NBA-NEC Meeting in Birnin-Kebbi, the resolution of the longstanding crises has now set the stage for the branch to elect its leadership.

NBA President, Mr. Yakubu Maikyau SAN had informed the meeting that “the leadership crisis rocking the newly created Nyanya/Karu Branch of the Association is also resolved following intervention facilitated by Mazi Afam Osigwe SAN.”

A leading lawyer and Bar Leader, Osigwe is also the Chairman of the Technical Committee on Conference Planning.

CITY LAWYER recalls that Nyanya/Karu Branch was created in June 2022 but has been embroiled in leadership crisis with two parallel factions claiming to be authentic.

According to the NBA Communique signed by Maikyau and NBA General Secretary, “Following the intervention of Osigwe SAN, the NBA President appointed a caretaker committee to oversee election for the Branch in June 2023.”
