A statement signed by Prof. Yemi Akinseye-George SAN, and Mela Nunghe, SAN says the compendium is considered by the Committee, as one of the ways to honour the erudite judge, who is set to retire from the judiciary on February 15, 2023 when he attains the age of 65 years.


The statement describes Hon. Justice A. O. Ajileye, a judge of the High Court of Kogi State, as an accomplished author, and expert on the law of Electronic Evidence.


It states further that, Ajileye’s vibrant, erudite, illustrious, and outstanding judicial career on the High Court Bench is widely acclaimed as worthy of celebration.
