Today, at about 9AM, remains of the late Barrister Justin Sekav Erukaa, younger brother to erudite journalist and news broadcaster, Charles Erukaa were laid to rest at their country home at Tse-Erukaa in Zaki-Biam of Ukum Local Government Area, Benue State.

The burial which was attended by people across all walks of life had in attendance, former Nigerian Senator, Minister and Ambassador to Ghana, Hon. Musiliu Obanikoro, for whom the late Justin worked with in various aspects. His friends from Abuja and Lagos as well as Charles' friends world over undertook long journies to pay the last respect to a brother and a friend. Relatives were in uncountable numbers. Politicians, members of the Nigeria Bar Association and admirers were all present.


The late Justin who was born in 1975 attended Robert Kennedy Memorial Primary School, Gboko and the prestigious Mt. St. Gabriel's Secondary School, Makurdi. For his tertiary education, the late Justin read law at the Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria and proceeded to the Nigeria Law School, Abuja and was called to the Nigerian Bar in 2001. From then onward, he practiced the law with diligence and enthusiasm. A thing that endeared him to Senator Musiliu Obanikoro who engaged him at different levels as legislative aide and personal assistant as a Senator, Minister and an Ambassador. This relationship, he kept to his end.


Justin who died on the 25th of June in Abuja after he flew in from Lagos to attend to private businesses and the practice of the law, while on his way back from a friend's house suffered a ghastly motor accident as he ran into a truck that was right in the middle of the road due to poor visibility occasioned by a torrential downpour. Mr. Sekav is survived by his parents and siblings as well as numerous relatives and friends. May his soul find peace and may God grant the family the fortitude to contain the loss, amen.
