Michael Aondoakaa, Nigeria’s troubled former Attorney General and Minister of Justice, has had his suspension as a Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN) pegged to two years. 

Last October, the Legal Practitioners Privileges Committee (LPPC) of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) suspended Mr. Aodoakaa as a SAN following a petition by the Committtee for the Defence of Human Rights (CDHR) requesting his removal as a SAN.

Since being removed as Attorney General by President Goodluck Jonathan, Mr. Aondoakaa has suffered the ignominy of being barred from entering the United States on account of his track record of official corruption and obstruction of justice while in government. 

He has also been banned from holding public office by a federal court in Calabar which upheld a lawsuit which claimed he violated the tenets of democracy by corruptly impeding the judgment of the court in an election case.
