After prof Akanbi, Kwara again loses High Court judge


A judge in the Kwara State Judiciary, Justice Safiya Titi Dayibu, has died.

It was gathered that she died on Monday after a brief illness.

The development comes a day after the death of the Vice Chancellor of Kwara State University (KWASU), Prof Mohammed Mustapha Akanbi, who has since been buried according to Islamic rites.

Referred to as one of the most influential female judges in the state, late Daibu had reportedly been nominated to succeed Justice Sulyman Durosinlorun Kawu as the next Chief Judge of Kwara.

She would have been the second female Chief Judge in the history of the state after Justice Raliat Elelu (retd) who left the service in 2012.

The late jurist is one of the great granddaughters of the 7th Emir of Ilorin whose mother, Alhaja Hanatu Nagode (Nee Belgore) had died in May 2019.
