So Sad! Popular Lawyer Fred Agbaje Dies... PMB Mourns

Human rights lawyer and activist, Fred Agbaje, is dead. He was said to have died in London after an undisclosed illness on Friday.

President Muhammadu Buhari on Saturday commiserated with the family, friends and professional colleagues of the erudite human lawyer. In a statement, the President said he received the news of Agbaje’s death with shock.

He described him as “an ardent advocate against corruption and canvasser for internal democracy in political parties, who also believed strongly in the sanctity of the ballot box.”

Buhari commended the fearlessness of late Agbaje in calling for the cleansing of bad eggs in the judiciary and standing up for his beliefs as he fought for the rights of the less-privileged.

May his soul rest in peace. Amen!
