NAJUC commiserates with Fagbohungbe over fire disaster
The Lagos branch of the National Association of Judicial Correspondents (NAJUC) has commiserated with a Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN), Chief Felix Fagbohungbe whose law chambers was badly affected in the fire disaster that gutted the Mamman Kontagora House in Lagos penultimate week.
Fagbohungbe, who is the patron of the association, lost valuable items to the inferno which was said to have been caused by a surge from the room where the generator is kept on the third floor of the building. It was gathered that Fagbohungbe lost several files, expensive law books, general books and other valuable materials to the inferno.
The Mamman Kontagora building, which is owned by the Federal Mortgage Bank of Nigeria (FMBN), is on the Lagos Island. The senior lawyer has since relocated to 29A, Adeyemi Lawson Street, off Oyinkan Abayomi, Ikoyi, Lagos.
However, NAJUC in a statement jointly signed by Tunde Opeseitan and Gbenga Soyele, Chairman and Secretary respectively, commiserated with Fagbohungbe and prayed God to grant him the strength to bear with the painful loss of highly important files and materials.
“While we thank God that no live was lost to the inferno, we are not oblivious of the fact that the fire disaster must have really cost the learned silk a great fortune because to set up a fully functional law chambers is really expensive.
“We know that law books, case files, exhibits, general books and other valuable items must have been lost by Chief Fagbohungbe to the inferno. “We call on Nigerians to be more safety conscious so as to stem the tide of frequent fire disaster and other avoidable disasters”, the group said.
