When my shivering before senior lawyer as new wig led to adjournment of case – Akomologbon

Barrister Abdul Ahmed Akomologbon obtained his first degree in law from the University of Ilorin after his graduation in 1999/2000. He had his NYSC at the Niger State Judiciary and worked briefly with Barrister Lambo Akanbi & Co. before he proceeded to the law school in 2002. He was subsequently called to bar in May 2003. He then returned to the law firm of Lambo at Taiwo road and left for Olomu & Co. following the appointment of his former principal as a federal High Court judge around 2004. Having spent a year with Olomu & Co, he left to set up his office where he is the principal partner in 2006.
In this telephone interview with ACTING EDITOR, MUMINI ABDULKAREEM, he shares his most dramatic experience as a legal practitioner thus far. Excerpts;
This incident happened the first day I appeared in court around 2003, I cannot remember the name of the judge now but it was in Elerin and I was still with my principal then, Honourable Justice Jimoh Lambo. As a new wig that was appearing in court for the first time, it happened that I had to face a senior counsel, Barrister Razaq Gold. That day was a very terrible day for me as I was so frightened and jittery facing a very senior member of the bar. Although I later summoned courage and was able to cope, but the judge who observed my predicament that I was shivering and sensed that I will be unable to face the lawyer later adjourned the case because of the drama that was happening in his court.
