Governor Bello has earlier in his condolence message described the late Chief Judge as a legal icon who stood for the cause of justice and defended the Rule of Law while doing his best to smoothen collaboration between the Executive and Judicial arms of Governments as the State’s Chief Judge.

He noted that the late Chief Judge had also served at the National level in several capacities meritoriously.

Bello described Ajana as a fearless judge who was renowned for demanding discipline in his court and delivering thorough and sound judgments.

The Governor noted that Kogi State has lost a legal luminary who bestrode the heights of his chosen profession like a colossus and cast his shadow far beyond the confines of the state.

Bello condoles the immediate family of the late Kogi (CJ) Chief Judge and the state’s judiciary over the irreparable loss.

He prayed to God to grant the soul of the deceased Aljanna fidaus and fortitude for his family to bear the irreparable loss.
