However, it has emerged that some of persons named as plaintiffs in the case said they did not consent to the suit.

Led by Robert Lartey and Vincent Anas Asitibasi, the worried staff have petitioned the General Legal Council against the conduct of the lawyer, TV3 news has reported.

“Lawyer Samson Lardy Anyenini used my name to issue a writ without recourse to my consent and to secure a court injunction against my employer, the Youth Employment Agency,” Mr Asitibasi complained.

Quoting unnamed sources, TV3 said about 150 staff listed as plaintiffs to the suit have officially written to the Agency to disassociate themselves and have denied any knowledge of the court action as they threaten to sue the lawyer.

The petition to the General Legal Counsel comes on the heels of the suspension of human rights lawyer Francis Xavier Sosu

He was accused of extortion and self-advertisement and banned from practicing for three years.

He has mounted a legal challenge to overturn the decision.
