Human Rights lawyer murdered in his home in Lagos

Human rights lawyer and social commentator, Barrister Kunle Fadipe (pictured above) was last night July 3rd  murdered at his residence at Harmony Estate near Karaole Estate, College Road in Ifako Ijaiye, Lagos.
 
According to reports, the estate where the late barrister lived was plunged into total darkness after power outage and the lawyer asked his son to go and turn on the generator. As his son made his way to the generator, a man armed with a knife accosted him and ordered him to take him to his father. As soon as the man got to Mr Fadipe, he stabbed him in the neck and back. His daughter who was at home immediately ran out of the house and called for help. Two security officials attached to the estate immediately ran there and were able to overpower the murderer. Continue..
 
The motive for the murder is still uncertain however the police has taken the killer into custody with a promise that the incident will be thoroughly investigated.
Late Mr Kunle Fadipe was a former member of the National Human Rights Commission and a member of the board of trustees of the justice advocacy group, Access to Justice. May his soul rest in peace...amen.

The way people snuff life out of their fellow human beings is terrible these days. Humans have lost it indeed. Hope the dead finds peace the other side.

THE TINUBU LIST – UNEDITED
1. 4, Oyinkan Abayomi (formerly Queens) Drive, Ikoyi: A 5-bedroom detached house on one acre of land which was originally the Lagos State Governor’s guest house since 1979, but which now belongs to Tinubu. The certificate of occupancy of the property valued at N450 million was signed and released to him by Fashola in 2007 shortly after he assumed office.

2. Tinubu’s residence at 26 Bourdillon Road, Ikoyi was initially falsely presented as Oando Plc Guest House. Later, he purportedly bought it from Oando, and used public funds to rebuild and renovate it. The Lagos State Government bought the property and paid an undisclosed sum to him and thereafter gave the property back to him under the bogus Pension Bill he signed to law shortly before he left office in 2007. The property is worth over N600 million.

3. The annex of the Lagos State Guest House in Asokoro, Abuja was bought by the State Government in 2006 for N450 million, purportedly to protect the main house from security breach. Shortly after Tinubu left office, the property was transferred to him under the pension plan he signed into law before leaving office.

4. The 250-hectare land valued at about N35billion and strategically located at the Ajah junction on Lekki Road was initially meant for a General Hospital for the people of Eti-Osa Local Government but was stolen by Tinubu and handed over to Trojan Estate Ltd – a company owned by Deji and Wale Tinubu – to develop as Royal Garden Housing Estate at the expense of the taxpayers of Lagos.

5. The 1,000 hectares of land valued at about N75billion located at Lakowe near Abijo at Ibeju-Lekki Local Government and given to Lekki Concession Company (LCC) which is partly- owned by Tinubu and Fashola and being developed as golf course and housing estate by Assets and Resource Management Ltd (ARM) as ADIVA project.

6. The prime land of 157 hectares with 2.5km of Atlantic beachfront valued at about N10billion and stolen by Tinubu from the c

Linda, I commend you greatly for always giving back to your readers. However, it would be great if you can come up with a charity organisation on reaching the wider community that's if you have not already done that or you don't have it in the pipeline. Maybe sponsoring somer underprevilledged children back to school.

I pray God will continue to bless you. It will be great to leave your name on the sand of time.

Above all, all you have is from the Lord, always remember that.

Hmm....It's clearly an assassination, unless the guy's a psychopath.
The security guys should be questioned also, to find out how this happened while they are on duty... and add some measure to prevent future occurrence.

chai. dere is God oo. Why resort to killing instead of dialogue. Assassins shouldn't be killing innocent citizens but should target Boko Haram, Corrupt officials,etc. Killing a human right activist is a great loss to us coz he represents our interest in the society. RIP and may God give the family fortitude to bear the irreparable loss.

Okay, I hope the police will interview the guy ASAP, before they get to him, which I think will happen. They need to get him on tap/video as he confesses who sent him. I feel like I know how this will end. They man will most likely die under police custody. They will sweep it under the rug like so many other cases.

I received the death of kunle Fadipe with great shock. I met kunle Fadipe when he was in the chambers of the late sage T O S Benson San, he was the head of chambers and he was unassuming ,and a detailed attorney ,from there he was appointed to the human rights commission .it is a painful loss and i hope his death will be properly investigated .May his soul rest in peace.
