The President of the Nigerian Bar Association; Abubakar Balarabe Mahmoud, SAN, OON received with great shock and disbelief the news of the death of a colleague and very active Bar man, Victor Omagbemi Grant, Esq who passed on in the early hours of Saturday 25th November 2017.
“VOG” as he was fondly called by his colleagues was an astute Legal Practitioner who was committed to the cause of justice and promotion of the rule of law. He had served the NBA in different capacities at branch and National level including being the Secretary, Vice Chairman and Chairman of the NBA Warri Branch. Up until his death, he was a member of the NBA National Executive Committee and the 1st Vice Chairman of the Mid-Western Bar Forum.
The President on behalf of the National Executive Committee extends his condolence to the family of late Victor Grant, NBA warri branch, Mid-Western Bar Forum and the entire members of the NBA on the loss of a father, husband, brother, friend and colleague. There is no doubt that VOG will be greatly missed by all of us.
May his gentle soul Rest in Peace.
Dated the 25th day of November 2017 at Abuja.
