The Fred Agbaje’s Chambers on Sunday released a statement to officially announce the death of its principal partner, Mr. Fred Agbaje.
The brief statement jointly signed by Prince Kennedy Osunwa and Adeniyi Pokanu stated that Agbaje died at about 8am on Saturday, November 26, 2016 at the Lagos University Teaching Hospital, Idi-Araba, Lagos, as opposed to earlier media reports that the legal icon died in a London hospital.
The chamber described its late boss as “a resolute defender of the oppressed, a law lord, legal authority of our time, a legal colossus and a rare gem,” whose death had left a yearning gap to be filled by in the nation’s jurisprudence.
The statement said that a condolence registered had been opened at the Fred Agbaje’s Chambers at No. 51, Popoola Street, Pedro, Shomolu, Lagos, adding that the Agbaje’s family would soon announce the deceased’s burial arrangement.
