“We deeply mourn the sad loss of our departed colleague and pray that the Almighty God grant his family the fortitude to bear the loss.”

Abayomi was born on the 20th of August, 1940. He was called to the Nigerian Bar in 1966 and admitted to the Inner Bar in 2005. He taught at the Nigerian Law School and rose to the position of Director-General in November 2004.

One of his colleagues Dele Adesina SAN said Abayomi held the ideals, values and virtues of the Legal Profession exceedingly high.

“Dr Kole Abayomi SAN built his reputation on what was all the way positive such as proud parentage, sound legal education, high standard of legal practice, elegance, decorum and self-confidence. These qualities will remain indelible in our hearts,” Adesina said in a separate statement.
