Vice President Yemi Osinbajo on Monday met privately with the new executives of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
The meeting is believed to be a courtesy call by the leadership of the NBA on the VP, but it comes at a time when the association has condemned the actions of the executive arm in raiding the homes of judges and arresting them.
“It was a courtesy call. The new NBA officers wanted to meet with him after their elections,” a source said.
Mr. Abubakar Mahmoud had emerged as the new president of the NBA in an election in August this year.
Mahmoud won the election with 3,055 votes to defeat his rival, Joe-Kyari Gadzama, who got 2,384 votes.
