President Buhari mourns late Justice Ogbuagu

Timothy Choji, Abuja


Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari has condoled with the Ogbuagu family as well as the National Judicial Council over the passing of Justice Francis Ikechi Ogbuagu.

The President commiserates with friends and professional colleagues of the late jurist, who served variously in the Federal High Courts in Imo and Abia, before rising to the Appeal and Supreme Court.

The President believes the legal luminary served diligently, and contributed immensely to the strengthening of the judiciary, which remains the bastion of Nigeria’s democracy.

President Buhari salutes Justice Ogbuagu’s deep sense of patriotism, loyalty and commitment to nation building, which was long sustained after he retired from the Supreme Court in 2010.

The President prays that God will grant his soul eternal rest, and comfort his family.
