The day I spoke with him, it had to do with my wife’s anniversary. When I called him, he said he was on his way to attend a court case in Abeokuta, Ogun State. That was the last time we talked. Now only for somebody to call me to tell me that Fred was dead. I am just shocked by this terrible news. I never knew that he had a health problem.

Igbokwe described him as a good man and added: “He has been our family lawyer for a long time and we had a very good relationship.”

Former Anambra State governor, Peter Obi, who also commented on the death of Agbaje said that the country had lost “another voice that spoke for the people.”
