“The attempt to take any life will never be tolerated in a civilized society. The brazen attack to our brother in the legal profession is taken as an attack to the whole legal community,” the lawyers’ group said.
“We call upon all concerned agencies of government to immediately address this case and see to it that all perpetrators be brought to justice,” it added.
