NBA Ex-President Olumide Akpata Accuses Edo State Official of Orchestrating Attack During University Event

Olumide Akpata, the immediate past president of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA), has found himself embroiled in a controversy following an alleged attack during an interactive session organized by the University of Benin Staff Club.

Akpata, who also served as the governorship candidate of the Labour Party (LP) in Edo State, has accused a senior official of the Edo State Government of orchestrating the attack against him and other participants.

Akpata’s background as a legal luminary and former NBA leader adds weight to his claims and amplifies the incident’s significance. Having held a prominent position within the legal fraternity and contested for political office, Akpata’s accusations against a government official carry implications beyond the immediate context of the attack.

In the video statement released by Akpata, he vehemently denied allegations that his security aides were responsible for shooting a UNIBEN student, asserting that the disruption of the interactive session was instigated by hoodlums claiming to be students.

His assertion that the attack was politically motivated, especially in an ongoing election season, underscores the volatile nature of Nigerian politics and the lengths some individuals may go to advance their agendas.

The involvement of security agents in evacuating Akpata from the scene further underscores the seriousness of the situation. It raises questions about the safety of public figures in the face of such confrontations.

Akpata’s narrative, coupled with the Edo State Government’s condemnation of the attack, adds layers to the unfolding story, sparking debates about political interference, student activism, and the rule of law.

As investigations continue into the incident, Akpata’s profile as a legal practitioner, former NBA president, and political aspirant will undoubtedly cast a spotlight on the outcome and implications of the case.

Amid heightened political tensions and social unrest, the resolution of this matter will serve as a litmus test for accountability, justice, and the protection of democratic values in Nigeria.
