President Buhari has sent and expressed his heartfelt condolences to the family of former Supreme Court Judge, Justice Oyegoke Bolarinwa Babalakin, who passed on yesterday, at the age of 94.
The deceased was buried the same day, according to Islamic rites, at his Gbongan, Osun State, country home.
Islamic prayers for the deceased commenced by 4:25 p.m and was led by the Chief Imam and Mufusir of Osogboland, Alhaji Isola Maruf Olawale.
President Buhari, in a statement issued by his spokesman, Garba Shehu, equally commiserated with the government and people of Osun State on the loss of the eminent Jurist who rose to the pinnacle of his profession as a Judge of the highest court in the land, becoming one of the final authorities in legal issues in the country, thereby greatly enriching the nation’s jurisprudence.
Buhari noted that the late Justice Babalakin, long after his retirement, continued to give wise counsel to the Muslim community, especially MUSWEN where he was a former President.
The president prayed that Almighty Allah will reward his good deeds with Aljannah
