Awa’s Murder: NBA-SARC Chair Bemoans Escalating Insecurity In Nigeria


The Nigerian Bar Association Security Agencies Relations Committee (NBA-SARC) unequivocally condemns the murder of Awa Peter Awa, Esq., Vice Chairman of the NBA Ihiala Branch and a Prosecutor in the Anambra State Ministry of Justice. This egregious act is not only an assault on the legal profession but also a grave affront to justice and the principles of the rule of law.

The escalating insecurity within the nation, particularly in Anambra State, is deeply concerning. The continued targeting and violence towards members of the legal community are unacceptable and demand immediate attention. The tragic loss of Mr. Awa serves as a stark reminder of the pervasive insecurity that jeopardizes not only legal professionals but all citizens of Nigeria.

The NBA-SARC urges the Anambra State Commissioner of Police, the Anambra State Police Command, and all relevant authorities and security agencies to promptly and thoroughly investigate this crime, apprehend the perpetrators, and take necessary measures to ensure the safety and security of all citizens. It is imperative that the legal community remains undeterred by such barbarism, upholding our dedication to justice and the rule of law.

Additionally, a call to action is directed towards the governors of the eastern states of Nigeria to proactively address the ongoing security challenges within the region. Implementing comprehensive strategies to safeguard the lives and properties of citizens and to restore peace and stability in our communities is of utmost importance.

The NBA-SARC extends its deepest sympathies to the family of Awa Peter Awa, Esq., and to all those impacted by this heinous act of violence. The Association stands in solidarity with them during this challenging time.
