CRIMINAL LAW

What we do: CRIMINAL LAW

Afe Babalola & Co. boasts extensive practice experience in criminal matters and litigation. Our clients regularly depend on us for advisory support in Police Interviews and for their admittance to administrative and judicial bail. We provide tough, insistent and thorough Criminal Defence litigation services with equal emphasis on the legal requirements for a conviction as well as on factual and evidentiary analysis. We recognise that the liberty of a citizen depends on the quality and effectiveness of our representation and realise the responsibility we owe to society to ensure that only the best evidence which establishes guilt beyond reasonable doubt is available and presented for consideration to the Court. The firm’s pro bono practice anchors on providing legal representation to indigent defendants as well as convicts some of whom instruct the firm only after having been handed capital punishment sentences. Emmanuel Chambers’ partner, Sina Ogungbade anchors the firm’s pro bono practice and has secured the reduction of sentences in Stephen Egwu v. The State and Okiki Faleye v. The State both being appeals where the Appellants had originally been sentenced to die. In John Olomo v. The State and Ahmadu v. State, Sina successfully obtained the acquittal of the Appellants who had been wrongly convicted and sentenced to die. Emmanuel Chambers presently represents defendants in on-going criminal matters before all strata of our judicial system. Afe Babalola has also prosecuted for the government of the Federal Republic of Nigeria including the famed prosecution of the alleged attempted killers of the late Prof. Dora Akunyuli.
