•Late Barrister Mohammed Fawehinmi

Mohammed Fawehinmi, son of the late erudite lawyer and activist Gani Fawehinmi, has died at the age of 52.

The younger Fawehinmi died yesterday, Wednesday, August 11, 2021.

“He complained of difficulty in breathing this morning and was taken to the hospital and that was all,” a source said.

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

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

In 2003, he had a terrible accident in Lagos, which affected his spinal cord and confined him to the wheel chair.

Though he managed the law firm left by his father, he was unable to practise law the way his father had hoped.

The accident also changed his life, the way he never envisaged.

Mohammed Fawehinmi was unmarried before his death. As he said in an interview in 2018,

the accident affected his life in many ways.

He had said: “I just felt that I shouldn’t bother any woman with my condition. I didn’t want anybody to marry me out of pity. Even though I always have females around me, it is not every woman that can stay with a person with disability of my kind.

“Most of the women I have met in recent times are not the ones that can stay with a man, they are the type who would want to attend parties and keep all sorts of friends instead of looking after me. Of course, a few have come close to what I want but the temperament is nothing to write home about.”
