Mrs. Akodu: The Loss of an Exemplary Legal Practitioner by Dele Adesina SAN


My Colleagues and I at Dele Adesina LP express our condolences to our Learned Silk and former President of Nigerian Bar Association, Dr. Olisa Agbakoba SAN; the Chambers of Olisa Agbakoba Legal (O.A.L.); the members of Akodu Family and Nigerian Bar Association, Lagos Branch over the death of Mrs. Bisi Akodu.

Mrs. Bisi Akodu, the Managing Partner of O.A.L., died on Sunday, the 10th of May, 2020 at the age of 66 following a protracted illness which she fought with all her faith. She was an exemplary advocate, a passionate Legal Practitioner and a mentor to many subordinates. Her contribution to the development of our Jurisprudence and her impressive knowledge of the Nigerian Financial System was almost unrivalled.

It is an understatement to say that this hard-working, dedicated and committed Managing Partner will be greatly missed by her Families, both the blood family and of course her Professional family. It is our prayer that the Lord will give the Families the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss.

May her kind and gentle soul rest in peace.

Dele Adesina SAN
