Respected legal luminary, Justice Yahaya Abiodun Jinadu, is dead.

The honourable justice, who was aged 93, passed on Thursday morning.

Jinadu attended Methodist Boys High School Lagos (MBHS) and was called to bar in 1954.

Before his elevation to the High Court Bench in Lagos State, he was Solicitor General of the Federation.

In his lifetime, he was known as an upright judge who believed strongly in the independence of the judiciary before his retirement from the bench in 1984.

In accordance with Islamic rites, his remains will be buried later today at the Vaults and Gardens, Ikoyi, Lagos.

Jinadu is survived by children, including Mrs Olugbolahan Babalakin.
