Buhari Mourns Mohammed Fawehinmi

President Muhammadu Buhari has mourned the demise of late Gani Fawehinmi’s eldest son, Mohammed.

Gatekeepers News reports that President Muhammadu Buhari has has commiserated with the family of the late Human Right lawyer, Gani Fawehinmi, over the death of their son, Mohammed.

Buhari in a statement by his Media Aide, Femi Adesina, condoled with mother of the deceased, Ganiat and the entire family.

He urged them to find comfort in God, who gives and takes, and to draw consolation in the fact that the departed robustly fought a debilitating condition, which confined him to the wheelchair for many years.

“His body may have been broken, but his spirit was virile, agile, and he kept the flag of the family flying, doing justice to the memory of his late father,” the statement read in part.

Buhari while praying for the repose of the soul of the departed, urges strength for all those who mourn Mohammed Fawehinmi.

Mohammed Fawehinmi, the eldest son of late human rights lawyer, Chief Gani Fawehinmi, died late on Wednesday night.

He complained of difficulty in breathing and was taken to the General Hospital in the Gbagada area of Lagos State where he was confirmed dead.

Mohammed obtained an LLB degree from the University of Buckingham, England, and was called to the Nigerian Bar in 1998.

He was involved in a car accident in 2003, which affected his spinal cord and confined him to a wheelchair, but this did stop Mohammed from his social crusade campaigns, neither was he deterred from commenting regularly on matters of human rights violation and the rule of law, issues which he remained passionate about until his death.
