The Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) will honor Mrs. Omobolanle Raheem, a female colleague who was fatally shot on Christmas Day, on January 16.

Fidel Info reports that this was announced by the NBA in a statement given to reporters on Friday.

The statement which was signed by NBA’s Assistant National Publicity Secretary, Mr Charles Ajiboye stated that, “With the directive of the NBA President, Mr Yakubu Maikyau (SAN), a befitting day of tributes will be organised by the NBA in honour of the deceased, Mrs Bolanle Raheem.”

“The event tagged: “Auroral Tributes to Mrs Bolanle Raheem by the NBA”, is to be held at the Dining Hall of the Nigerian Law School, Lagos Campus, on Jan. 16, from 1. p.m. to 4. p.m.”
