The legal team ordered that any lawyer that flouts the ban, no matter his rank or how highly placed, would be kicked out of the defense team.
A Senior Advocate of Nigeria, SAN, Adeniyi Akintola, conveyed the decision of the team to the court at the Tuesday’s proceedings.
Akintola did not adduce any reason on why the ban was adopted.
He said that the same ban has been extended to Tinubu.
