Kanayo O Kanayo, the veteran Nigerian actor has been honored by his local community for being the very first lawyer coming from that community.
Lawyer Kanayo O Kanayo, who got called to the Bar in September, is from Nru Umueze Oboama, Ezinihitte Mbaise, Imo State, whose elders found it prudent to celebrate him for his achievement, apparently to encourage other youth from that community to strive for higher academic laurels as Kanayo O Kanayo has done.
The elders of the Umuike na Nkwo clan presented him with gifts to celebrate his feat.
The actor/Lawyer shared the moments on his Instagram page while urging his people to always be on the right side of the law.
“My community, Nru Umueze Oboama, Ezinihitte Mbaise, Imo State, presented me with gifts as the first Lawyer produced by the Umuike na Nkwo clan. To God be all the the glory for mercies,” he wrote.
He added, albeit jokingly, that no one should call him if they sleep with someone’s wife or have defrauded somebody, as he won’t be at hand to defend them at the court.
“They came to find out if what they saw all over the social media on September 15th was true, that their son was called to the Bar. I confirmed and urged them to always be on the right side of the Law, I will do my utmost to provide legal services . (1) if you sleep with somebody’s wife, DO NOT CALL ME (2) If you defraud someone, DO NOT CALL ME etc,” he added.
