Firm announces funeral arrangements for Ogunbanjo

A law firm, Chris Ogunbanjo & Co., has announced funeral arrangements for their esteemed Managing Partner, Otunba Abimbola Ogunbanjo (OFR), who died on February 9 in California, USA.

According to a statement released by the firm yesterday in Lagos, series of events have been planned to honour Ogunbanjo.

A service of songs and night of tributes will hold on February 29, followed by a funeral service on March 1 at the Church of the Nativity, Parkview. Private interment follows at The Anchorage, Erunwon. The family has requested privacy “during this difficult time.”


Otunba Ogunbanjo was not just a leader, but also a revered figure known for his wisdom, integrity and dedication to legal excellence. He served as a guiding light for individuals within the firm and beyond, leaving an indelible mark on the Nigerian legal landscape.

“He was more than just a leader; he was a guiding light, a mentor and a symbol of legal excellence,” said the firm.


“His absence leaves a significant void not only within our firm, but also across the legal and business communities in Nigeria.”

Ogunbanjo’s legacy extended far beyond the courtroom. He was a passionate advocate for professionalism, innovation and entrepreneurship, values he instilled within the firm and inspired others to adopt.


He was also a role model, embodying the timeless values of the firm’s founder, the late Chief Chris Ogunbanjo, OFR, CON.


The firm expressed their commitment to upholding his legacy and carrying forward his vision with unwavering determination.


“As we reflect on Otunba’s remarkable contributions, we are determined to honour his memory by rededicating ourselves to the pursuit of excellence that he championed,” the statement said.


Abimbola Ogunbanjo was the Group Chairman of the Nigerian Exchange Group Plc (NGX Group) from 2021 to 2022.

Prior to this, he served as the President of the National Council of the Nigerian Stock Exchange (NSE) from 2017 to 2021.


Ogunbanjo was a distinguished legal practitioner, serving as Managing Partner of Chris Ogunbanjo LP (Solicitors). He had extensive experience in commercial law, with a particular focus on capital markets, shipping and mergers and acquisitions.

He was also on the boards of several multinational corporations and non-profit organisations, including Beta Glass PLC and the Advisory Board of the University of Buckingham Centre for Extractive Studies.
