Buhari Mourns Erudite Human Rights Lawyer Fred Agbaje

By Ikenga Chronicles November 27, 2016

President Muhammadu Buhari has expressed sadness over the death of human rights lawyer, Fred Agbaje who passed away on Saturday.

This came few hours after he commiserated with the family of Late Cuban Revolutionary Leader, Fidel Castro who died during the early hours of Saturday.

In a statement by his Special Adviser of Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, the president commiserated with the family, friends and professional colleagues of Fred Agbaje.

The President described the constitutional lawyer 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.”

He commended the fearlessness of the late lawyer 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 in the society.’’

He notes that the country has lost a principled man as he enjoins Mr. Agbaje’s admirers to keep the flag flying.
