Retired Justice of the Supreme Court, Justice Pius Olayiwola Aderemi, CON passes away at age 80.

Justice Pius died on Monday at a hospital in Ibadan, Oyo State after a brief illness.

A statement issued by his son, Olakunle Aderemi, described the deceased as a devoted Catholic, defender of the law and an exemplary and incorruptible jurist of Nigeria’s apex court.

Aderemi, 80, was at a time, a member of the National Judicial Council, member of the Body of Benchers of Nigeria, and was a Papal Knight of St. Gregory the Great.

Former President Goodluck Jonathan, in December 2010, nominated Aderemi as chairman of the Independent and Corrupt Practices Commission (ICPC).

Aderemi is survived by children and grandchildren.
