THE NBA Asaba Branch has been notified of the transition of a very senior member of the branch in the diaspora, Emeka Arinze, Esq.


Emeka Arinze, Esq., was called to the Nigerian Bar in 1983. Until his death, Emeka was an expert in digital evidence and eDiscovery law. He is the first Nigerian lawyer to be dual qualified in Law and Forensic Technology.

His over 1000 pages book on Digital Evidence and eDiscovery Law Practice in Nigeria is a masterpiece on the subject and used as a training manual by various training institutions.

For over a decade, Emeka Arinze has trained lawyers and judges at the Nigerian Institute of Advanced Legal Studies (NIALS), Lagos and on the platform of the Nigerian Judicial Institute (NJI) on the subject of Digital Forensic Advocacy and other related fields.

He was indeed an icon in the legal profession and would be greatly missed.
