Pandemonium As Lawyer Storms Court Dressed As Reverend Father

Ogbachalu Goshen, a lawyer, made a splash when he showed up at the Okpoko Magistrate Court in the Ogbaru Local Government clothed in full clerical garb and posing as a reverend father.

On Thursday, Goshen made a statement regarding his attendance as a defense attorney in a court proceeding overseen by Her Worship CB Mbaegbu.

He disputed when the Magistrate informed him he couldn’t appear in court and speak in that attire, citing a recent Supreme Court decision that supported female pupils wearing the hijab in public schools as a precedent.

Additionally, Goshen argued that the Magistrate’s objection violated his fundamental rights as stated in Section 38 of the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic and that it was his right to object.

However, Goshen defended his actions in an interview by asserting that the incident has now become a constitutional issue as a result of the Supreme Court’s decision.

He continued by asking the court to clarify what would transpire if a Muslim woman attorney showed up to court wearing a headscarf.

He claimed that because the Supreme Court reached its decision, he should be permitted to identify himself in court as an ordained priest as well.

Remember how Malcolm Omihrhobo, another attorney, appeared before the Supreme Court last week dressed as a native doctor?
