Nigerian human rights lawyer, Fred Agbaje, has been confirmed dead in London, PREMIUM TIMES reports.
Agbaje was said to have died on Saturday following an undisclosed ailment.
A colleague to the late legal practitioner, Ebun-Olu Adegboruwa, while confirming the report, described him as a “highly detribalised Nigerian.”
“He got nominated for SAN (Senior Advocate of Nigeria) three times but failed to make the final list, and he told me he would not lobby anybody for that title,” Mr. Adegboruwa said.
“He was a highly detribalised Nigerian, not many knew he was from Edo State. The bar has lost an icon, his place in Nigeria’s judiciary can never be filled,” he added.
