“We submit to the decree of Allah who gives and takes.

“It is against that backdrop that we mourn the Vice Chancellor who answered Allah’s call tonight.

“He was a true and humble servant of Allah and we beseech our God, the Oft-Forgiving and Merciful, to grant him Al-jannah Firdaus.

“The professor of law was a colossus who played the leading role to open a new chapter of academic excellence and greatness for KWASU.

“Our condolences go to his family, immediate and extended, to KWASU and the rest of the academic community, and to members of the bar and the bench in Kwara and across the country,” the statement read in part.
