Hassan, representing the Concerned Stakeholders of Lagos West Senatorial District had petitioned the chairman of the tribunal, Justice S. C.

Adeola’s counsel, Kunle Adegoke had file a contempt case against Barrister Hassan and at the last sitting of the Tribunal, Justice Oriji ordered that a retraction of the false allegation be published by Daily Independent before he can rule on the culpability and possible sanction for the erring lawyer.
