Human rights lawyer Ondo state born Bamidele Aturu died on Wednesday 9 2014, at the age of 49. Mr Aturu attended Adeyemi College of Education , Ondo after which he proceeded to the mandatory NYSC where he hit the limelight by rejecting an award . His activism at Ondo resulted in brushes with authorities. He proceeded to read law at the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile Ife. It was a profession he thought could give him the latitude to fight for the people and air his views on contemporary issues at all times. A few weeks ago , he hosted the Lagos branch of Adeyemi College of Education old students association at his office at Cement bus stop off Lagos Abeokuta expressway.
May his soul rest in peace
