A retired Justice of the Supreme Court, Sir Pius Olayiwola Aderemi, is dead. He died after a brief illness on Monday at a hospital in Ibadan.
According to a statement by his son, Olakunle Aderemi, Justice Aderemi, until his death, was a devoted Catholic, defender of the law and an exemplary and incorruptible justice.
He was once a member of the National Judicial Council, the Body of Benchers of Nigeria, and a Papal Knight of St Gregory the Great.
The late jurist was once nominated by former president Goodluck Jonathan to chair the Independent and Corrupt Practices Commission (ICPC).
Justice Aderemi is survived by children and grandchildren.
