Frank Agbedo wrote that classic and celebrated law book on the rights of an accused person in Nigeria.
On Tuesday 13th of December 2016,The Global Center for the defence of Human Rights will at the prestigious Nigerian Institute of International Affairs host lawyers to a discussion on Human Rights Practice in Nigeria. Another of Mr Agbedo’s book titled Human Rights Litigation in Nigeria will be presented.
Many Nigerian Lawyers have shown interest to be at the venue on the 13th probably armed with questions bordering on the present challenges going on in the Judiciary, to understand and discuss how to litigate human rights abuse against Law enforcement agencies and to understand the seeming conflict of human rights procedure with the normal rules of court.
Agbedo’s book will provide for the litigation Lawyer all he needs to know to start and conclude a human Rights case which is very welcome as many Lawyers still find it difficult to understand how to relate with Law enforcement agencies in terms of practice and procedure.
The event which is already three quarter booked will have the Governors of Lagos State and Enugu State present.
The Chief Judge of Lagos State and The Attorney General of Nigeria will be present as special guests
The Chief Host will be the Chairman of Nigerian Bar Association Lagos,Mr Martin Ogunleye while the Chairman of the event will be the former Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Idris Kutigi.
The book was reviewed by Femi Falana.
