Drama as two female lawyers reportedly fight dirty in the court premises over who should represent a client in court.
According to report by PM Express, the 40- -year old Barrister Nkiru Nwanyawu and Adaobi Emeka, 37, threw decency away in Lagos and engaged in public fight over client inside Court premises.

They were arrested by Police operatives from Ojo Division and subsequently charged before the Court for the alleged offence.
The Police alleged that the lawyers fought over who will get the brief of the suspects produced in Court. It was reported that one of them, who is pregnant, Adaobi, first offered her complimentary card to the suspects to brief her but the move was opposed by Barrister Nkiru, who immediately threw her card on the floor.
That led to the fight in the court premises on March 16.

They started fighting in the Court but were arrested and detained at the Police cell. And were later released on self recognition and charged before the Court for fighting. And they pleaded not guilty.
The prosecutor, Supol John Uche, then asked the Court to give a date to enable the Police to prove that they actually committed the alleged offence.
The Presiding Magistrate, Mr. A. A. Adesanya, granted them in the sum of N100,000 with one responsible surety.
They were detaines pending when they will perfect their bail conditions while the case was adjourned till May 18, 2021.
