Nathan Akatakpo, a lawyer and a gentle man was said to have been assassinated at Ahouda, Rivers State on Monday 21/11/2022.
His client was also said to have been murdered a day earlier, showing that he was most probably killed for defending the rights of his client in court.
It is so sad and I am very shocked that this very vile assasination was not reported in any news outlet….so, it is so normal to kill a lawyer for defending others!
This matter must not be allowed to go the way of other attacks on lawyers, because the clue to those probably behind the murder is very obvious. It is scandalous and very daring that a group of persons can plot to kill a lawyer not minding the inference that can be drawn from the killing of his client a day earlier.
The lawyer of your opponent is not your problem, he is only an advocate and intercessor just like your own lawyer.
An attack against a lawyer must be an attack against all lawyers…..may justice be served on your behalf Nathan Akatapo of counsel.
