The Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) held yesterday a special valedictory session in honour of the late lawyer and activist, Mr Bamidele Aturu.
Aturu died on July 9 in Lagos after a brief illness.
The valedictory programme, which held at the Bar Centre, GRA, Ikeja, was attended by senior members of the Bench and Bar and other sympathisers.
NBA Ikeja branch Chairman Yinka Farounbi described the late Aturu as a committed member of the branch who served in various capacities.
He said the branch would immortalise the late Aturu with an annual programme, adding that his death was a big loss to the legal community.
Farounbi said the event was historic because it was the first for any lawyer.
Also, NBA Lagos branch Chairman Alex Mouka said the late Aturu was never afraid to speak up against any form of injustice.
