He shares with our JUDICIARY CORRESPONDENT, KAYODE ADEOTI his unforgettable experience in court. Excerpts:
Though the experience I consider unforgettable happened a long time ago when I was still a young wig, but its impact is still fresh in my mind like it occured yesterday.
On the fateful day in court, I was lambasted and received bashes from the  judge. On that day, I was sent by my principal to handle a particular file. While in court, I was to move an application based on how I was taught in the Law School, I wanted to move it orally, not knowing that it was wrong. The Judge tried to guide me but I insisted and became unconvincing about it; thinking I was right trying to move the motion orally. This angered the judge who lambasted me saying, “You’re as ignorant as the boss who sent you”, I felt insulted but there was nothing I could do than to still appreciate my ‘Lord’ for putting me through.
