History Beckons as Falana Seeks Hat-trick in BOA Lawyers’ League Final


Olisa Agbakoba Legal have the chance this afternoon to end the second fiddle role it has been subjected to in the last two editions of the BOA Lawyers League as curtain falls on the 2018 edition of the prestigious football tournament for legal practitioners in Lagos.

Today’s finale is the straight third final clash between the two leading law firms with Falana emerging champions back to back. Will Falana be third time lucky or will Agbakoba continue to remain in the shadow of the team that has become its nemesis?

Today’s battle at the AstroTurf 2000 in Ikoyi, Lagos presents Agbakoba the perfect opportunity to end the dominance of Falana in the tournament.

To qualify for today’s final game, Olisa Agbakoba defeated Rickey Tarfa 4-2, while Falana & Falana beat Banwo & Ighodalo 2-1. Owolabi Dare was Olisa Agbakoba’s semifinal hero, while two goals from Bada Femi and Kazeem Lemoh accounted for Banwo & Ighodalo’s scalp.

The BOA Lawyers League is held annually in memory of the late notable lawyer, Mr. Bankole Olumide Aluko, a founding partner in the law firm of Aluko & Oyebode, who passed on 17 years ago. The final is expected to draw all the bigwigs in Nigeria’s judiciary to AstroTurf2000, where, apart from the football match on display, they will enjoy other programmes lined up to entertain them.
