Meanwhile, popular legal practitioner, Inibehe Effiong, has stated that controversial singer, Portable was the nightmare of every lawyer because he is a difficult client.
Recall that the singer resisted arrest after some men of the police command stormed his bar to arrest him for failing to honor several invitations sent to him on Tuesday.
Reacting to the standoff going on between the police and the singer, and his revelation that he purposely ignored the request to come in, the lawyer took to his Facebook page to claim that the singer is the kind of client who will act and speak in a way that is contrary to a lawyer’s plan of action.
“When it comes to having problematic, difficult, and deviant clients, Portable is every lawyer’s nightmare. He is the type of client that will be doing things and making comments that are counter productive to a lawyer’s strategy.”
