Popular Nigerian Law School teacher, Dr. Abraham Femi Afolayan will be interred today at his Iyamoye, Kogi State homestead after funeral obsequies. He was aged 64 years.

CITY LAWYER recalls that the law teacher slumped and died on October 24, 2023 during a public function in Abuja.

Though some stakeholders had queried why the Criminal Litigation law teacher had to be ferried to the satellite town of Bwari from the Abuja city centre for medical treatment, an impeccable source told CITY LAWYER that that was the wish of the deceased law lecturer.

According to our source, “He asked to be taken to the Nigerian Law School Clinic at Bwari where they have his medical history. Sadly, he died enroute the Clinic.”

Funeral arrangements obtained by CITY LAWYER shows that a Valedictory Session was held for the deceased law teacher at the Abuja Campus of the Law School last Thursday while a Wake-Keep Service also held the same day at the Junior Navy Quarters, Kubwa, Abuja. There was also a Wake-Keep /Lying-in-State at his Iyamoye residence, Ijumu LGA of Kogi State.

A requiem service will hold today at First Baptist Church, Iyamoye, Kogi State while the deceased will be interred at his residence after the service. Reception follows after the interment at First Baptist Church, Iyamoye, Kogi State.

In a tribute by the Chairman of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA), Bwari Branch, Mr. Paul Daudu, he wrote: “Dr. Abraham Femi Afolayan was the personification of diligence, erudition and scholarly attention to detail. Our members, who were privileged to have been to taught by Mr Afolayan all bear testimony to the simplicity of his scholarly works and methodology of teaching Criminal Litigation at the Nigerian Law School. We at the Bar also took ‘’judicial notice’’ of his contributions towards Continuing Legal Education in Nigeria as Mr Afolayan always made out time write articles in various Law Journals despite his very busy schedule at the Nigerian Law School. To say Mr Afolayan was a prolific author is an understatement. His contribution towards our criminal law jurisprudence, I dare say will be etched like a footprint in the eternal sands of time.”
