We are dumbfounded by the news heralding the death of Dr. Hauwa Evelyn Shekarau, Esq, the courageous, legal trailblazer of our time.
The current UN representative of FIDA International, multiple national FIDA office holder, human rights Activist, current Chairman of the Nigeria Bar Association (NBA), Abuja Branch (Unity Bar), quintessential Advocate and pace setter just saw to the organising of a successful Bar Week that we hoped to take hint from, only to be awoken by the sad news. She is a leader that will be engraved in our hearts.
Shekarau’s loss will be greatly felt by the Nigerian Bar Association, the Unity Bar of the NBA, FIDA, every human right activist and legal practitioner, both nationally and internationally. She will be missed.
The NBA Branch, Jalingo (the Equity Bar) does extend her condolences to her family, closest ones and friends – persons who are most hit by the loss. May her good soul rest in peace!
