MEMBERS OF THE BAR AND BENCH EULOGIZES LATE JUSTICE DENNIS EDOZIE
Judicial officers have been told to endeavour to make positive impact on the people and the environment for which they will be remembered.
The Chief Judge of Enugu State, Justice Ngozi Emehelu gave the advice at a valedictory court session in honour of the late Supreme Court Judge, Justice Dennis Edozie at the Enugu State Judiciary Headquarters.
The event began with a procession by the members of the bar and the bench.
The Court session was an opportunity for members of the bar and the bench to pay their last respect to the late Supreme Court Judge who retired from service on the tenth of November 2015 at the age of seventy and died on August 18 this year.
The Enugu State Chief Judge, justice Ngozi Emehelu described the late Supreme Court Judge as a devoted Christian who had no divided loyalty to the course of justice.
Justice Emehelu maintained that the late Judge lived a spotless lifestyle in the discharge of his judicial functions and could be remembered for his clean record while in office.
For the State Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, Mr Melitus Edozie had left a vacuum in the judicial sector which would be difficult to fill.
Chairmen of various Branches of the Nigeria Bar Association in Enugu State and the oldest Senior Advocate of Nigeria present at the event, Chief Enechi Onyia described the late Justice Edozie as an outstanding judge.
The event was well attended by both serving and retired Judges including the Chief Judges of Anambra and Ebonyi States, friends and relations of the deceased.
