Popular Instagram comedian, Lasisi Elunu has been called out by a representative of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) for ‘misrepresenting’ lawyers in his skits.

In the video titled “The Law”, Lasisi was seen sarcastically standing before a judge to defend his ‘invisible’ client. He further asked viewers to tag lawyers to the post.

Reacting to the video, the Assistant National Publicity Secretary of the NBA, Habeeb Lawal, bashed the comedian for his joke depicting lawyers in a court session.

Mr Habeeb fumed over the portrayal of his colleagues in the skit and the comedian’s disregard for their garments which he stated were the wig, bip and gown.

“Dear @lasisielenu, We’ve been tagged! 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.

“In the likely event that you need a guide on how to make a joke about lawyers without ridiculing our appearance, here is a good guide,” he tweeted.

Lawal added a video to guide Lasisi and other comedians on the proper way to represent lawyers in their skits.
