Pilot Law



Day Fulani man threatened my life during cross examination 

Tunde Falola graduated from the University of Ilorin, Kwara State in 2000, he proceeded to Law School and was called to the Nigerian Bar in 2002. He served in the Chambers of Chief Awomolo from 2004 to 2009 before establishing his law firm, Tunde Falola & Co in the state capital in 2009. He shares with our JUDICIARY CORRESPONDENT, KAYODE ADEOTI his most challenging moment in the legal practice. Excepts:

The day I can never forget since I’ve started practising could be traced back to when I was a corps member. I started having right of audience in court since that time because I had been called to Bar.

On that fateful day, I had to travel from Ondo State, where I was serving to Osun State in order to handle a criminal matter.

Incidentally, I had to cross-examine a Fulani man. Somebody was interpreting my questions to him. Then, at a time, he grew annoyed; maybe he was intimidated by my questions, then he issued a death threat and said I should be warned. I was scared and frightened by the threat. In fact, in lieu of that, I changed my location and my itinerary.

But it was equally a great day for me, because I eventually won that case. It was one of the best cases I’ve handled.
