Popular Lawyer and Human Rights activist Chef Gani Fawehinmi is dead.
The senior advocate of nigeria died on Saturday 5th September, 2009 after a protracted battle with lung cancer which had reduced his activities in the past few months.
Chief Gani Fawehinmi who died on the 6th anniversary of the burial of his mother was aged 71 (22nd April 1938 – 5th September, 2009).
The widow of the late activist was quoted as saying: “he had no regret in doing what he did and said if he comes back to this world and there is still corruption or injustice, he would continue to fight. He also said that he will continue to fight in his grave if he has no opportunity to come back.”
We pray that God may grant his family and indeed this nation strength to bear this great loss.
May his soul rest in peace.
