Lawyer Slumps, Dies Outside Courtroom In Port Harcourt
A lawyer has collapsed and lost consciousness outside a courthouse in Port Harcourt the Rivers state capital.
The legal practitioner who is a native of Ibaa in Emohua LGA of the state identified as Eze Agala slumped just as he stepped outside the Magistrate Court building on Moscow Road, Port Harcourt.
He was immediately rushed to the Police Clinic where he was confirmed dead.
The tragic incident has elicited great sadness amongst lawyers who knew Agala well. Many grieving colleagues gathered at the clinic while hoping he would regain consciousness, only to be met with devastating loss.
“It is with a heavy heart that I share this awful news about our colleague Eze,” a senior lawyer communicated to peers via a solemn statement. “I just witnessed his lifeless body at the Police Clinic after his collapse at court. He was a jolly good fellow, always full of life.”
Eze Agala Esq. was called to the Nigerian Bar in 2003, embarking on a vibrant career that made him popular within the courts and legal circles. His sudden passing represents a major blow, robbing the profession of a witty, charismatic character known for his joie de vivre spirit and camaraderie.
As the legal community mourns this tragic loss of one of their own, many have paid tribute to Agala’s warmth and excellence as a lawyer.
