The Governing Council and distinguished learned members of the Eastern Bar Forum received with crude shock, the sudden demise of the former Chairman, Nigerian Bar Association, Warri Branch and the first Vice Chairman, MidWest Bar Forum, late Victor Omagbemi Grant, Esq. which sad event occurred in the early hours of Saturday, 25th November, 2017.
We commiserate with you on this extremely unfortunate situation, particularly because our late colleague was a consummate Bar Man that epitomized the sound and sterling attributes of a true-to-type legal practitioner. The Nigerian Bar Association and indeed the beloved members of his home Branch will unreservedly and sorely miss his exquisite services and incalculable contributions.
We wished we could permanently rout the effects of death but we lack the competence and therefore urge you to take solace in the fact that our beloved late colleague lived a wholesome and God-honouring life and most importantly was a relentless advocate of the truth and promoter of respect for rule of law. The Almighty God shall remember him in the resurrection. Let us all remember the loved ones he has left behind and embrace the legacies he bequeathed to us, one of which is to rise up in defence of the oppressed.
