The Nigerian Bar Association has filed a petition against a young Abia State-based lawyer and online sensation, Ifunanya Excel Grant aka 'baddest lawyer', before the Legal Practitioners Disciplinary Committee for posting nude images of herself on social media.
Grant, who was called to Bar in 2021, became an Internet sensation for posting nude images of herself smoking on social media, Barristerng reported on Saturday.
In the petition, the NBA revealed that it had filed misconduct charges against Grant and former INEC Resident Electoral Commission in Adamawa State, Mr. Hudu Yunusa-Ari, before the LPDC.
The petition partly read, "Following the resolutions of the National Officers, the NBA has filed petitions at the Legal Practitioners Disciplinary Committee against Hudu Yunusa-Ari, the suspended Adamawa State Resident Electoral Commissioner of the Independent National Electoral Commission and Ifunanya Excel Grant, a young lawyer of Aba Branch widely known as “the baddest lawyer” on social media.
"Yunusa-Ari was petitioned over his role in illegally declaring the result of the supplementary 2023 governorship election in Adamawa State while votes were still being counted.
"While the complaints against Miss Ifunanya centred on her social media notoriety of posting pictures and videos of herself unclad and smoking marijuana."
