The Hon. Chief judge died on the 18/5/2020 at the National Hospital Abuja after a protracted illness and this has left a big vacuum in the state judiciary.
He was the Chief judge of Yobe State from 2011 until his demise last night. The late Chief Judge was one of the longest serving Chief Judges since the state was created on the 27th day of August, 1991.
As the Chief Judge, he contributed greatly to the growth of our Jurisprudence. While in office he brought peace to the state Judiciary that endeared him to the hearts of Judges and staff.
He will be greatly missed by his family, friends, NBA Branches in Yobe state and its environs, above all the Yobe state Judiciary.
May the Almighty God grant the family the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss.
Adieu, Hon. the CJ
