Reports have emerged that human rights lawyer and activist, Fred Agbaje, has passed on.
He was said to have died in London on Friday.
Another human rights lawyer, Ebun-Olu Adegboruwa, also confirmed Agbaje’s passing.
He described him as a thorough bred lawyer and a man of principle.
“He got nominated for SAN (Senior Advocate of Nigeria) three times but failed to make the final list,” 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 said.
The cause of his death is yet to be disclosed.
