HON E. C. Aguma SAN: A Quintessential Bar Man is Gone – Joshua Enemali Usman
It was with great shock that I received the news of the demise of an ebullient, industrious, hardworking, courageous and upright lawyer, Hon. E. C. AGUMA SAN, who passed on to glory on the 10th day of August 2018.
I first met and interacted with Hon. E. C. Aguma from 2012 to 2014 when we served as NBA Prosecutors at the Legal Practitioners Disciplinary Committee of the Body of Benchers; the way and manner he conducted his cases with diligence, his enthusiasm, style of advocacy, general conduct and willingness to interact with lawyers of every strata got me endeared to him as the youngest in age and Call to Bar in the midst of Nine (9) other Seniors Lawyers. His insight on issues was greatly respected and admired by all.
Hon. Aguma, was a perfect gentleman and will be remembered for his robust intellect, courageous nature, love for humanity, thoroughness and for justice. It behooves on us to strive to sustain his ideals of hard work, courage, discipline and justice. The NBA Port Harcourt (of which he was a member), and indeed the entire Association will miss him greatly.
We humbly entreat God to have mercy on his soul and give his family and indeed all members of the bar and bench the fortitude to bear this colossal loss.
We bid adieu to our amiable distinguished Silk, HON. E. C. AGUMA, SAN. Rest on Sir.
He will forever live in our hearts.
