One of Nigeria’s foremost human rights lawyers, Bamidele Aturu, has passed away at the age of 49.

The lawyer, who is known for his commitment in championing human rights and constitutionalism, died in a Lagos hospital on Wednesday, July 9, 2014 after a brief illness.

Aturu was one of the founding members of a political group committed to pursuing deep-rooted democratic principles and holding those in power accountable to the governed – Democratic Alternative.

He was nominated as a delegate of the ongoing National Conference, but declined because he believed the conference was designed to achieve nothing.

May his soul rest in peace.
