“He was an accomplished solicitor; an accomplished advocate, we shall all miss him.
As lawyers, we never fight. We only argue cases of our clients from both sides. There was a day we argued in court vehemently, the following day he was the first to greet me. That was the kind of lawyer he was.
” I know he dedicated his life for Christ. He knew the Prince of Peace while he was alive. I’m sure he will rest in peace. If we celebrate life there must be a time to celebrate those who have died. Because God giveth life and taketh “, he added.
