Habeeb who serves as the Assistant Publicity Secretary of the Nigerian Bar Association, wrote on Twitter saying lawyers enjoy his jokes but do not like the way he ‘ridicules’ their noble profession.
“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.
