Mohammed, the eldest son of late legal icon and activist, Chief Gani Fawehinmi, will be buried after an autopsy has been conducted and the result released.

At a press conference on Thursday, Mohammed’s sister, Mrs Basirat Fawehinmi-Biobaku, who spoke on behalf of the family, made the announcement.

According to her, the family could not preempt the cause of his death until release of the autopsy result.

Recall that Mohammed was said to have complained of breathing difficulties and was taken to a hospital, where he later died.

However, Mrs. Fawehinmi-Biobaku, said that the deceased would be buried once the family concluded all necessary arrangements.

This is after consultations with all relevant stakeholders, both in the country and outside the country,” she said.

Mohammed had a law degree from the University of Buckingham, England and was called to the Nigerian bar in 1998.

The deceased was the Chairman of Nigerian Weekly Law Reports before his demise.

In 2003, he had an accident in Lagos, which affected his spinal cord, confining him to wheelchair.
