Kwara State Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq has described the death of Justice Sofiyyah Titi Daibu as a painful loss to the state, describing her as one of the shining lights of the bench in the state.
The Governor said in a statement on Tuesday morning that the death of the senior High Court Judge was shocking.
“This, again, is a huge depletion in the ranks of the great minds in our state, especially in the judiciary where she was a leader with a difference,” the statement said.
“Our commiserations go to the judiciary in the state and Nigeria, the Ilorin community as a whole, and especially her families on all sides. Our consolation is that Justice Daibu was an exemplary figure, loved within and outside of the bench for her good nature.
“We pray Allah, exalted is He, to repose her soul in al-jannah Firdaus and comfort her family.”
