Lawyer Who Dressed Like ‘Juju Priest’ To Courts Threatens To Sue MURIC Over Alleged Defamation Of Character.

Chief Malcolm Omirhobo, a human rights lawyer and activist, has threatened to sue the Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) over alleged defamation of character. Omirhobo recently dressed to the Supreme Court in Abuja and a Lagos High Court like a ‘Juju priest,’ believed to be worn by worshippers of ‘Olokun’, the ruler of all bodies of water and other water deities.

The lawyer, who hails from Delta State, last week said he dressed to Supreme Court that way to exercise his fundamental human rights following the judgement of the apex court that allows every Nigerian to express their way of worship and the use of hijab in schools and public places.

MURIC had in a statement by its director, Professor Ishaq Akintola knocked Omirhobo for dressing like a traditional doctor to the apex court.

Akintola said the lawyer’s behaviour is not only contemptuous of the Supreme Court pronouncement but also provocative, condescending, and irreconcilable with the noble profession of law.

He also blamed Omirhobo’s actions on alleged “bigotry fanned by the embers of hatred”.

Reacting in a letter to MURIC dated June 29, 2022, Omirhobo asked the organisation to withdraw the statement “about him hating the sight of Muslims.”

He said if there was no retraction within seven days, he would be compelled to file a defamation suit in any appropriate court of law.

“That your said publication is false, malicious and calculated to defame me and did defame me,” Omirhobo said.

“That your aforesaid publication lowered me in the estimation of right-thinking members of the Muslim society and exposed me to hatred, ridicule, odium, scorn and contempt.

“That your aforesaid publication caused pecuniary to me and/or injured my financial credit in respect of my profession, calling, trade and/or business.

“Consequent upon the above, I demand an immediate and unambiguous retraction of the above-mentioned publication from you within seven days of your receipt of this letter to be published in the Daily Post Newspaper and ten other National widely read Newspapers, failing which I shall be constrained to bring legal action against you without any further recourse to you.”

Kid Cudi Says It Would Take A "Miracle" For Him & Kanye West To Be Friends Again

Kid Cudi Says It Would Take A “Miracle” For Him & Kanye West To Be Friends Again.

Kid Cudi says that it would take a “miracle’ for him to mend his friendship with Kanye West. Contrasting his beef with Ye to that of Drake’s, Cudi explained in a new interview with Esquire that he won’t be making amends anytime soon.

The Man on the Moon rapper explained:  “With all due respect, I’m not Drake, who’s about to take a picture with him next week and be friends again, and their beef is squashed. That’s not me. What I say, I mean. I will be done with you. It’s gonna take a motherfucking miracle for me and that man to be friends again. I don’t see it happening. He gon’ have to become a monk.”

“The twisted thing is that I love him, but I love you so much that I can kick you the fuck out of my life and be done with your ass. ’Cause you are not good for me,” he said, before quoting philosopher Samantha Jones. “I love myself more. I love myself more.”

“I didn’t love myself all them years you knew me,” he continued. “I love myself more now, bro. I love myself way more.”

While the two artists were once longtime friends and frequent collaborators, earlier this year, Cudi found himself pulled into West’s drama with his ex-wife, Kim Kardashian, and her then-boyfriend, Pete Davidson. Things escalated when Cudi replaced West as the headliner at Rolling Loud, which resulted in fans throwing objects at Cudi throughout his performance until he stormed off stage. West later trolled Cudi over the incident on social media.

Elsewhere in the interview, Cudi reflects on aging in hip hop, his final conversation with the late Virgil Abloh, going to therapy, and more. Cudi’s next album, Entergalactic, is due out later this year.
