Justice Isiaka Ishola Oluwa Retd at a ripe old age of 102 years on Saturday, 9th May 2020. “The news of the demise of our revered Judicial icon, Justice Oluwa is a mixture of sadness and happiness.

Happiness; because his transition is a celebration of an impactful life, well-lived and sadness because we will miss his fatherly presence and wisdom at this time. ’ “Justice Oluwa was an erudite, rare bred Lagosian who spent his time in retirement canvassing and championing the cause and interest of Lagosians in every sphere of endeavour. “I know him to be outspoken about the political relevance of Lagosians in all matters of appointments relevant to the management of the State.

The meritorious service and contribution of our revered Justice Oluwa to the growth and development of administration of Justice in Lagos State during his active career years on the bench, as a renowned Justice of the State High Court till his retirement in 1983 will always be remembered. “Justice Oluwa will be sorely missed by all, especially, members of the Judiciary and Ministry of Justice Family.
