The statement said “As a lawyer holding a public office by representing Nigeria at the diaspora, Adejare Bello is very conversant with the watchdog role of the law.

“As association, we are more shocked that the same Bello who is an ambassador was at the same time attacking a journalist in the public space for controlling some defiant motorists who were trying to manipulate their ways against traffic rule.

“By denigrating the journalist, Bello has exposed himself the more as an intolerant and power abuser who has allowed political influence to withdraw his integrity from the media and general public.
