AA petitions Legal Practitioners Disciplinary Committee over alleged Professional misconduct by Udeze
By: Femi Mustapha
The Action Alliance (AA) has petitioned the Legal Practitioners Disciplinary Committee on the alleged unethical conducts and acts of a lawyer who is also a former member of the party, Mr Kenneth Udeze.
In a petition filed by the National Chairman of the party, Dr Adekunle Rufai Omoaje before the Legal Practitioners Disciplinary Committee (LPDC) holding in Abuja, the party decried Udeze’s alleged illegal activities as a lawyer.
Also joined in the petition are Malachy Chinyeaka Nwaekpe, Sylvanus Uchendu, Peter Abang, Peters Ugwuoke and Jennifer Anderson-Achilike.
Omoaje who deposed to an affidavit to support his claim against Udeze alleged that Uduze was in the habit and practice of filing suit with fictitious names.
It would be recalled that Udeze who was a former member of the AA had since been suspended and subsequently expelled from the party, having been found wanting of various offences.
The party had since 14th December 2022 petitioned the committee in order to investigate the allegations leveled against Udeze.
Having carefully looked into the allegations in the petition, the committee said it has found it worthy of being looked into and has subsequently served the parties involved in the petition for their responses against the allegations contained in the Petition.
