Over 10 thousand legal practitioners will be attending the conference.

The Attorney General told reporters in Owerri that various points from the airport to the venue of the conference, which is the Imo International Convention Centre, had been earmarked as screening points before gaining access into the hall.

He also said that the State government was well prepared for the programme and had put adequate measures in place to ensure the security of all participants and the smooth success of the programme.

Mr Umeh further debunked allegations that there was a court order restraining the government from using the venue of the programme.
