Former President of Nigerian Bar Association, Dr Olisa Agbakoba, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria, has commiserated the family of Professor Ben Nwabueze on his demise, adding that the deceased lawyer will be missed.
Nwabueze, a pioneer Secretary-General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo and the Oduah Afo-na-isagba of Atani, Anambra State, died on Sunday October 29, 2023 aged 94.
Agbakoba, a senior fellow of Ben Nwabueze Centre for Constitutional Law, in his condolence message said, “Prof. Nwabueze’s academic prowess towered above all.
