Uwakwe Azikiwe, Nigerian lawyer and son of Nigeria’s first President, Dr Nnamdi Azikiwe has topped up the Bravery Fund for Ejiro the Hero to the total sum of N905,000.00. The 30-day fundraiser was set up by the Citizens Advocacy for Social & Economic Rights (CASER) to financially reward the brave and patriotic act of Ejiro Etarigho, the tanker driver who saved over 10,000 lives and property worth billions of Naira when he drove a fully loaded petrol that caught fire in a densely populated area and removed it to the riverside to avoid disaster.

Azikiwe, a highly detribalised Nigerian in a chat with CASER Executive Director and publisher of lawtimes.ng , Frank Tietie with whom he attended the Nigerian Law School as classmates, considered his contribution to the fund as a token to inspiring heroism in Nigerian communities.
A detailed list of donors with account statements will be published on CASER website (www.citizensadvocacy.org) at the end of the 30-day fundraiser for Ejiro Otarigho and the campaign for restoring heroism in Nigerian communities which ends on the 11th of July.
