Lawyer Storms High Court Dressed Like A Native Doctor

Wonders they say never end. Every blessed day comes with unique occurrences some of which never repeat themselves though one may wish to have another of a kind.

A Nigerian lawyer got people talking after storming a high court dressed like a native doctor.

The Lawyer by name Malcolm Omoirhobo said he is a traditionalist and dressed that way because the court previously ruled in favour of a Muslim lady who wore hajib in a government school. That was a practice that wasn't permitted sometime back. According to him, the attire was to express his gratitude to the court for the ruling. 

He had the normal mixture of a wig, robe, a white patch around his right eye, a gourd around his neck, a feather and a red cloth around his waist was not the usual court-day appearance.

He said the ruling by the court signifies “freedom of thought, conscience, and religion'' and he is “I am a traditionalist and this is the way I worship," he said. 

He further noted that based on the decision of the Supreme Court, this is how I will be dressing henceforth in court because I am a strong adherent to ‘Olokun’, the god of rivers,” he remarked.

The dressing got people marveling but he has definitely introduced something new that might be the first of its kind.
