Call to Bar: Bomb scare forces shift of Call to Bar venue

The threat of Boko Haram attack has forced the Nigerian Law School to move the venue of this year’s Call to Bar to the International Conference Centre (ICC) in Abuja.

The Call to Bar – an annual induction of new lawyers – is traditionally held at the Law School in Bwari, in the Federal Capital Territory.

This year’s event is slated for October 5.

Head of Information Nigerian Law School, Bwari, Mr Chinedu Ukekwe confirmed the shift of venue from the school to ICC in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) yesterday.

He said the change of venue was initiated by the management of the school to ensure the security of lives. 

Ukekwe noted that “there are many porous gardens within the premises of the school and such gardens could deter security.’’

He said the Call to Bar programmes had always been in Bwari “but the issue of insecurity in the country has changed the location.’’

He said the level of insecurity in the country is a thing of major concern to every citizen. 

Mohammed Umar, the police chief in Bwari was not available to comment on the issue.
