Late Mr. Darlington Odumeh

Past Chairman of the Nigerian Bar Association, NBA, Benin Branch Ede Asenoguan Esq has condemned the recent Killing of the Publicity Secretary of NBA Orlu Branch Mr. Darlington Odumeh in Orlu, Imo State.

“I am saddened and shocked by the killing of the Publicity Secretary of the Nigerian Bar Association Orlu Branch Mr. Darlington Odumeh and I condemn in strongest terms this abhorrent and barbaric act.

“According to news reports, Mr. Odumeh was killed by assailants who trailed him to a supermarket in Umudara Amaifeke, Orlu.

This attack depicts a systematic assault on the justice system. Under our system of laws, the pursuit of life and liberty are enshrined in our Constitution.

The first and simplest justification for government is as protector: protecting citizens from violence. Unrelenting insecurity without a government to provide the safety of law and order and protect citizens from harm will deal any nation a fatal blow.”

“This horrible attack against Mr. Odumeh is an attack against the legal profession “

“We look to the authorities to investigate this heinous crime and bring justice to this case.

I urge the police to leave no stone unturned in ensuring that the perpetrators of the cowardly act are brought to book.

May his soul rest in peace with the Lord and may God console his family, friends, and colleagues.
