It was obvious that popular lawyer, Festus Keyamo, did not know how much he is loved by family, friends and professional colleagues until penultimate Sunday, September 24.
On that day, prominent personalities from all walks of life converged on the beautiful Civic Centre, Victoria Island, Lagos to celebrate him, following his recent elevation as a Senior Advocate of Nigeria, SAN.
Indeed, it was a defining moment in the life of the Delta State-born legal luminary, who is famously known as the defender of the defenceless.
Over the years, he has successfully handled and won many high profile cases, while also mentoring so many budding lawyers.
His emergence as a SAN, therefore, did not come as a surprise to many who know his dedication to his first love, Law.
Keyamo, who is the first SAN to have emerged from Uvwie kingdom, Ughelli in Delta State, had shown traits of excellence right from his undergraduate days in the university, where he represented his faculty and won several laurels as a student.
In attendance at the event were Africa’s richest man and notable industrialist, Aliko Dangote; Femi Falana, SAN; Mohammed Fawehenmi; popular Nollywood actress, Lillian Bach and respected fashion designer, Mudi.
