A Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Etukwu Onah, SAN, is dead.
According to report, he died last night, Saturday, 1st April, 2023 in a ghastly motor accident along Kubwa Road, Abuaja.
Mr. Etukwu died five months after becoming the first Senior Advocate of Nigeria of Igede extraction and the seventh from Benue South in Benue State.
Tributes have been pouring in from his friends and well wishers who described the late SAN’s death as too sudden and painful.
“we didn’t see this coming,it’s a big blow to Igede Nation,just few months ago we were celebrating your elevation to the highest rank as the first and only Senior Advocate of Nigeria in Igede Nation.”
“….He died last night in a ghastly motor accident along Kubwa Road, Abuja.. I have come to find that one of the most difficult days of life, is the day you begin to speak of friends or loved ones in past tense. Very woeful. You remain the pioneer SAN of the Igede ethnic nationality of Benue state. We thank God for your journey and patience through life. You always kept in touch and had implicit confidence in yours truly. Just when we thought you’d made the breakthrough, then this. You were good, kind and humble. Your sudden transition into eternal life is a huge, huge, personal blow. I have known you since 1991 in the Faculty of Law, ABU, Zaria. So, we both came a long way, Learned Silk. Rest in peace.”
