Controversial lawyer, Miss Ifunaya Excel Grant has shrugged off the petition filed against her at the Legal Practitioners Disciplinary Committee (LPDC) by the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA).

Hinting that she would trump the lawyers’ body like the biblical David in a post seen by CITY LAWYER, she asked a commentator who reminded her of the pending petition to “tell them say David k!||Ed Goliath.”

In a defiant post on Facebook which indicated that she was not fazed by the petition, Ifunaya wrote: “Before I can light up my Igbo (Indian hemp), do you have any advice for Me? Note: Tell those people wey dey fine (sic) me say I’m unavailable.” There are strong indications that she was referring to NBA. A similar post on her Twitter (X) account has been viewed by over 300 hundred thousand followers at press time.

In a flurry of exchanges with her followers who commented on the NBA petition, the controversial lawyer berated a commentator for suggesting that she would be jailed as a fallout of the petition, saying, “abégi shift.”

When one Omachi Isaac Achor also warned that “NBA is after you; very soon they go jail you,” she responded: “Then prepare to join me.”

Dabbling fleetingly into politics, she stated in response to a claim that she “studied law just to frustrate the law” that “If INEC fit declare Tinubu president why not.”

In an earlier post in response to the NBA petition, the lawyer-turned-social media sensation cryptically wrote: “Them go feel it.” She illustrated her statement with a sweating emoji, indicating that she would make the lawyers’ association sweat.

While most lawyers who weighed in on the trending report chided the young lawyer for allegedly bringing the profession into disrepute, a handful of lawyers however argued that the petition was misconceived, saying the embattled lawyer is not engaged in legal practice.

CITY LAWYER recalls that NBA had yesterday announced that it had filed a petition against the young lawyer at the LPDC “centred on her social media notoriety of posting pictures and videos of herself unclad and smoking marijuana.”
