The Jos Bar sadly announces the demise of the erudite jurist of repute, Hon. Justice Morofuye Oyetunde who served and retired as a judge of the Plateau State High Court of Justice. Those who had the privilege of appearing before him while on the Bench had fond memories of him. Some have described him as ”a stern jurist and a disciplinarian”. Someone had said he was ”a teacher who taught practically” and insisted that lawyers must appear neat with, (among others), well ironed bip.
The legendary jurist died a day ago in Ibadan, Oyo State. May the Lord grant him eternal rest, and comfort the family, the Plateau Judiciary and the Plateau and Nassarawa Bars.
