Former NBM ‘National OC legal’ (the organisation’s head legal advisor/lawyer) and former co-conspirator with Bemigho on several 419 fraud enterprises has moved on to better things.
Once accused by Bemigho as been the “faceless coward Uche Tobias” today finds himself as: The Chairman, Kogi State House of Assembly Standing Committee on Judiciary, Justice, Legal Matters and Protocol.
Oga, I just got this forwarded email and rejoinder from you.
I hope the rejoined message is not for me.
Sadly and most annoyingly the said ‘Uche Tobias’ is destroying the integrity and cause of an association I love and gave a whole lot of my time, energy and money for. Initially I thought the madness will blow over but sadly it hasn’t.
Some persons have called me to either accuse me of being the said person or to ask me to be careful as there are plans afoot by persons who I believe cannot see beyond their noses to rope me in as this madman as as a means to destroy me and the legacies I have left worked and hard to imprint in the association.
I am not UCHE TOBIAS. I am too much of a focused man to descend so low as to act in this narcissistically wanton manner. For the better part of 2014 to date I have concentrated on pursuing my political dream and have not even had time for my legal practice let alone such childish and incoherent foolhardiness.
We have met a couple of times. I pray the impression you had upon meeting me those times helps you in realising that I am not the said person and CANNOT be so dumb. Them no dey throway pickin with water and bath wer them use naff am.
I unfortunately had an ego clash with Bermuda. Yes. Bermuda is not NBM and so his immature and or unrealistic view of our ‘personal’ issue cannot be a catalyst for me to become unreasonable and insane.
I urge you to please look at the issue without sentiment and aid me in ensuring that our IT experts trace and isolate the point from which this madman is operating.
My regards to your family. Remain blessed.
Barr. Cosmas Henry Atabor (FCAI)

In his address, the legislator stated that “justice is not all and only about enforcement of our legislation and practices of our legal systems, it is also about the determination of our rights, be they civil or human. “Justice is also about the principle of equity which determines the quality of fairness in both our public and private affairs. “This Committee is the conscience of the Kogi State House of Assembly not only in overseeing the executive and judicial policies, programmes and activities but also in giving the right guidance in and with conformity to our judicial principles underlying the formulation, execution and interpretation of our jurisprudence. “Our advisory responsibilities would not be possible without the support of our critical stakeholders, our invited guests. I, therefore, have you all, with humility, to rely on.” In his remark, a former member of the Assembly and Chairman of the Committee, Barr.
