Mr Festus Keyamo
Commentary: Legal activist Keyamo began his career as a member
of the legal team of the National Democratic Coalition (NADECO), the
organisation formed to resist Sani Abacha’s dictatorial reign. He
gained further experience at the chambers of Gani Fawehinmi,
Nigeria’s greatest legal activist.
Keyamo spearheaded a challenge of a car procurement contract
involving Dimeji Bankole, Speaker of the House of
Representatives. He led a crusade to unravel the murder of Chief Bola
Ige, and was lead counsel for the Economic and Financial Crimes
Commission (EFCC) in their successful prosecution of Chief Bode
George for stealing money meant for contracts.
