President Muhammadu Buhari has condoled with family and friends of a deceased Justice of the Supreme Court, Justice Nwali Sylvester Ngwuta.
The Supreme Court Justice passed away early hours of Sunday in Abuja.
A statement by Garba Shehu said that the President joins people and government of Ebonyi State, Nigeria Bar Association and members of the Bench in mourning the legal luminary.
The President regretted that the death of the eminent Justice will leave a gap in the Supreme Court, “considering his experience and dedication to interpretation of the constitution.”
Shehu said that Buhari believes Justice Ngwuta lived and served the country with his knowledge of the law.
He prayed that the Almighty God will accept the soul of the departed, and comfort his family.
