President Muhammadu Buhari on Saturday night expressed shock over the death, earlier in the day, of erudite human rights lawyer, Fred Agbaje.

Buhari in a statement by his Special Adviser (Media & Publicity) Femi Adesina described the popular constitutional lawyer as “an ardent advocate against corruption and canvasser for internal democracy in political parties, who also believed strongly in the sanctity of the ballot box.”

“President Buhari commends the fearlessness of the late lawyer in calling for the cleansing of bad eggs in the judiciary and standing up for his beliefs as he fought for the rights of the less-privileged in the society. He notes that the country has lost a principled man,” the statement said.

Buhari commiserated with Agbaje’s family, friends and professional colleagues while enjoining Agbaje’s admirers to keep the flag flying.

“The President prays that God Almighty consoles the Agbaje family and all those who mourned the deceased legal practitioner,” Adesina further said.
