Dear @lasisielenu, We’ve been tagged! We beg to use you as a point of reference to all other comedians,” he wrote.

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.” he wrote.

Lasisi Elenu plays the role of Atomic Bomb who is a funny lawyer in his popular comedy series.
