Senator Ahmed Ogembe has described the death of Justice Nasiru Ajanah who died in Abuja on Sunday as a monumental loss that also came with rude shock.
In a statement he personally signed and made available to news men in Abuja, Ogembe recalled that the late Chief Jugde was an astute and illustrious jurist who placed the sanctity of his job over and above selfish gains adding that late Justice Ajanah possessed sound legal mind and has left indelible contributions to the nation’s jurisprudence.
“Justice Ajanah was a symbol of equity and boldness as exemplified in his characteristics and disposition from the much we know of him. He was a peaceful but bold jurist who worked very hard to build bridges and left indelible mark in the nation judicial system”
While admitting the demise as a great loss to the people of Kogi central where the late Justice Ajanah hailed from, Ogembe said “the central senatorial district has lost one of her illustrious son and a proud one for that matter, but its a great loss to Kogi state and the nation in general”.
Senator Ogembe prayed for peaceful repose of the departed Chief Judge saying; “May God grant the late Justice Ajanah a peaceful repose and grant his family, the legal community especially the bench and all his well wishers the fortitude to bear this irreparable loss”.
