I received with profound sadness the news of the sudden passing of the learned Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Granville Isetima Abibo who I understand died in the early hours of today, 15th June 2020, after a brief illness.
I join his family and the legal profession today in mourning over the void his demise has caused. I cannot even begin to understand what his family, the NBA Port Harcourt Branch, and his friends are going through right now. He was a beautiful soul, a true inspiration to everyone around him and a great loss to all the people who knew him. All who met him are lucky to have known him for the time that they did. I know he will be terribly missed and his memories cherished forever.
In this moment of loss, words are useless but I would like to offer my friendship, sympathy, prayers and heartfelt condolences to his immediate family and to the NBÀ Port harcourt Branch.
I also send my respectful condolences to the Body of Senior Advocates of of Nigeria (BOSAN) to which he also belonged. Granville Abibo, SAN was a remarkable man, and his passing is tragic.
My deepest sympathies go out to all who knew him especially the NBA Port Harcourt Branch. I pray this brings you comfort and may my prayers ease the pain of this loss.
God rest his soul in peace!
