The Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) has lodged a complaint against Ifunanya Excel Grant, known as the ‘Baddest Lawyer’, due to her online behavior and social media presence.
Ifunanya Excel Grant, who was called to the Bar in 2021, has been gaining attention for her unconventional lifestyle and social media activities.
A notice released by the NBA National Publicity Secretary said the organization has initiated disciplinary proceedings against Ifunanya Excel Grant and a former Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC) in Adamawa State, Mr. Hudu Yunusa-Ari.
These proceedings have been brought before the Legal Practitioners Disciplinary Committee (LPDC).
The nature of the complaint against Ifunanya revolves around her “notorious” behavior on social media, which reportedly includes posting explicit photos and videos of herself as well as allegedly engaging in the use of marijuana.
It is yet to be confirmed whether Ifunanya has been formally notified to present her defense.
An activist and lawyer Inibehe Effiong shared the petition on social media, while posing a question to his followers, asking for their opinions on the matter.
He wrote, “The @NigBarAssoc (NBA) has filed a petition against Ms. Ifunanya Excel Grant, alias @namu_lawyer (Baddest Lawyer) before the Legal Practitioners Disciplinary Committee (LPDC).
“The petition may not be unconnected with her social media lifestyle. What are your thoughts on this?”
