The family of Justice Sheik Abdulai Fofanah (photo) wishes to announce that he lost his life in a road accident on the Grafton road near Freetown Wednesday night. The accident occurred as he was heading to his home on Wilkinson Road in Freetown after a visit to Songo, a few miles from the capital. He was an Appeals Court judge.
The late Justice Fofanah, 58, will be buried in his home town of Songo on Friday February 17. He was the elder brother of one of our writers, Dr. Nanah Fofanah-Sesay and close friend and Fourah Bay College contemporary of our publisher Gibril G. Koroma when he ( the late Justice Fofanah ) was doing his first degree in History and Political Science at that university in the late 70s before returning a few years later to study Law. Our publisher was then studying Modern Languages.
The late former judge was one of Sierra Leone’s finest with a wealth of experience having served in many parts of the country including the Western Area.
More details about the funeral later.
