.. I was trained to protect my country and my people, not to side with the government to victimize them.
A legal practitioner Mr. U D Akpan Esq. has resigned his position with the EFCC legal team, sighting corruption, nepotism, bribery and injustice in the anti-graft agency.
According to Standard Daily Times, Mr. Akpan wrote: “At 70 and 80yrs they are afraid to die but they send the armed forces to kill Nigerian youth.
“This is to inform you that I have disengaged my services to EFCC to join the legal team of the ongoing #EndSars Movement. This decision is not unconnected to the ugly experiences i have had within the Commission and the outright domination of one ethnic group in the affairs of Nigeria.
Many reforms need to be carried out to push Nigeria out of the dungeons of mediocre leaders, nepotism and religious jingoists. I became a lawyer to defend the people, not to join the government to victimise them. Keeping quiet in the face of oppression does not suit my style. I am back to my turf.” said Akpan
