Human rights lawyer, Malcolm Omoirhobo has sparked social media reactions after dressing as an African traditional priest to the Supreme Court.

Photos of Malcolm spread like a wildfire on social media after he appeared in an African traditional costume at the Apex court.

Explaining his choice of outfit, the lawyer said that it was an expression of his fundamental human rights as prescribed by a recent judgment of the Supreme Court which permits all Nigerians to display their way of worship and the use of hijab in schools and public places.

Recall that the Supreme Court on Friday, June 17, 2022, gave a judgment that upheld the earlier judgment of the Court of Appeal which ruled that the ban on hijab was discriminatory against Muslim students in Lagos State.

“I am very grateful to the Supreme Court just last week Friday they made a very resounding decision that promotes Section 38 of the constitution. That is our right to freedom of thought, conscience, and religion.

“That we are free to express our way of worship in our schools and in our courts. That decision was reached on Friday and that has encouraged me.

“Because I am a traditionalist and this is the way I worship. Based on the decision of the Supreme Court this is how I will be dressing henceforth in court because I am a strong adherent to ‘Olokun’, the god of rivers,” he revealed.
