The Chief Judge of Kogi State, Justice Nasiru Ajanah is dead.
Ajanah died at the age of 64 in Abuja in the early hours of Sunday after battling with a brief illness.
His death is coming barely one week after the state lost the President of the Customary Court of Appeal in the state, Justice Ibrahim Shaibu Atadoga, after a brief illness.
The Kogi State Commissioner for Information and Communications, Kingsley Fanwo, confirmed the death of the chief judge in a statement he signed on Sunday.
The statement reads “The Kogi State Government wishes to announce the demise of Hon. Justice Nasir Ajana. Until his death, Nasir Ajana was the Chief Judge of Kogi State.
“The passing of the legal luminary is a massive blow to the Government and people of Kogi State for his brilliant justice administration throughout his career as a Judge and his tenure as the Chief Judge of Kogi State.
