“Championing Safety and Accountability: Afam Osigwe’s Call to Action at the Nigerian Bar Association Garki Branch Meeting”

At the meeting of the Nigerian Bar Association Garki Branch, Afam Osigwe, SAN, a distinguished legal practitioner known for his advocacy, spoke passionately about the urgent need for the legal community to play an active role in advocating for the safety and security of all citizens. Afam underscored the imperative for the Nigerian Bar Association to take a leading stance in ensuring that law enforcement agencies, particularly the police, fulfill their duty of protecting lives and properties.

Afam eloquently expressed how the Nigerian Bar Association, with its extensive network and influence, possesses a unique ability to champion this cause by engaging directly with security agencies. He emphasized that the legal community must use its collective voice to urge the police to conduct thorough investigations into recent distressing incidents, such as the kidnapping of lawyer Mr. Chris Agidy and the tragic killing of a lawyer in Nnewi, as well as other similar occurrences nationwide.

In his address, Afam stressed the paramount importance of the police rising to the occasion and executing their responsibilities diligently. He emphasized that every threat to the well-being of lawyers and citizens must be meticulously investigated, and perpetrators must face swift and just prosecution to ensure accountability and deterrence.

Afam also called upon the leadership of the Garki branch, recognizing their pivotal role, to take decisive action in holding security agencies accountable. He urged them to assertively advocate for the fulfillment of the critical duty of safeguarding lives and properties, not just within their branch but throughout the legal community and beyond.

Afam’s impassioned plea at the Nigerian Bar Association’s Branch meeting serves as a rallying cry for the legal fraternity to unite in their efforts to uphold justice, protect human rights, and ensure the safety and security of all individuals within Nigerian society.
