Demise Of Emmanuel Aguma SAN: A Painful Loss To The People Of Rivers State And The Legal Community– Arthur Obi Okafor SAN


It is indeed with deep sadness that I express my heartfelt condolences to the Government of Rivers State, family, relatives and friends of my learned friend and brother, Chief Emmanuel Chinwewo Aguma (SAN), Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice of Rivers State, upon his untimely demise on Friday, August 10,2018 in a London hospital.
An active and committed Bar man, Chief Aguma was a leading light of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA), especially the Port Harcourt branch where he served as Secretary in 2000-2002, and later Chairman between 2006-2008. He made invaluable contributions toward the unity and stability of our noble association.
His death is a painful loss to the people of Rivers State and the entire legal community. He will be fondly remembered as a brave and tireless promotor of justice, who served the society with boundless dedication, utmost humility and total commitment. His noble service and contributions to the legal profession shall indeed be missed.
I pray that the Almighty God will comfort the family and loved ones at this hour of grief.
May his soul rest in eternal peace.
Arthur Obi Okafor (SAN)
