The Edo State Government has expressed sadness over the death of retired Justice Andrew Otutu Obaseki, which occurred last Thursday.

A statement signed by the Secretary to the State Government, Barr. Osarodion Ogie, said, “Edo people recall with pride and nostalgia the remarkable judicial career of Justice Obaseki which started in Benin City and culminated at the Supreme Court of Nigeria. There, he became a distinguished member of that galaxy of jurists who created what is now known as the ‘Golden year of the Supreme Court of Nigeria.”

The statement further said, “In the course of a long and distinguished career as a jurist at the Apex Court, Justice Obaseki set down ground breaking judicial precedents and notable pronouncements in such classical decision as Governor of Lagos State v.  Ojukwu; Garba v. University of Maiduguri; Obeko v. Olowo and Awolowo v. Shagari, where the principles of fair hearing, natural justice, rule of law, and the protection of the citizens from extral-judicial acts of governments were laid down. The pioneering and ground breaking achievements of Justice Obaseki as the first Edo man to sit on our Apex Court led the way and cleared the path for such other Edo legal icons as Hon. Justice Omorose Ibukun Akpata (of blessed memory) and Hon. Justice S.F Uwaifo to bring honour to the Edos.”
