A representative of the Nigerian Bar Association has called out comedian Lasisi for ‘misrepresenting’ lawyers in his skits.
Habeeb Lawal, the Assistant National Publicity Secretary of the Nigerian Bar Association, took to Twitter to react to one of Lasisi’s comedy videos.
The comic act who is always spot on with his funny videos that gets fans rolling with laughter, recently added a new character to his acting.
In the skit, Lasisi dressed like a lawyer and also played the part of one.

We beg to use you as a point of reference to all other comedians.
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.”
