Osun Judiciary Holds Valedictory Session For Late Justice Ibidapo-Obe

A valedictory session was held in honour of the late Justice Olukayode Ibidapo-Obe in Osogbo on Thursday.

Ibidapo-Obe, a former high court judge of Oyo State, died on Dec. 1, 2013 at the age of 87 years.

The Chief Judge of Osun, Justice Adepele Ojo, described the deceased as a legal icon and judicial elder statesman whose exit was a big blow to the judiciary.

Ojo said Ibidapo-Obe was a “doer of justice and truth’’, in spite of whose ox was gored and who operated under the Latin maxim “Fiat Justicia Ruat Coelum’’ (justice must be done even though heaven falls).

“Ibidapo-Obe was a fearless and courageous man who was prepared to meet with death with bravado as he wrote in his book; “In Retrospect.’’

The Osun Commissioner for Justice and Attorney-General of the State, Mr Adewale Afolabi, described him as an industrious man and a great achiever.

Afolabi said Ibidapo-Obe was among few public servants who always returned unspent money to government’s treasury.

He added that Ibidapo-Obe was proof of how a good person should conduct himself, adding that he would be greatly missed by the state, his family, friends and the nation at large.

The family of the deceased, represented by Prof. Oyewusi Ibidapo-Obe, thanked members of the state judiciary for organising the valedictory service for their father.

The event, held at the State High Court 1, Osogbo, had judges, magistrates and other judiciary staff in the state in attendance.
