The President of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA), Olumide Akpata, on his behalf and on behalf of the NBA, today paid glowing tributes to the Late Hon. Justice (Dr.) Adolphus Karibi-Whyte CON, CFR, JSC (rtd), former Justice of the Supreme Court, who passed away recently. The President gave these tributes as the late Justice was buried today in his hometown in Abonema, Rivers State today.


Speaking at the funeral service which was held at the St. Augustine Anglican Church, Abonema, President Akpata extolled the stellar qualities of the deceased, noting that the late Justice belonged to a cadre of distinguished Jurists that was fast becoming extinct.

He said “I consider it a great honour and privilege to pay tribute to this great man on behalf of the Nigerian Bar Association. Justice Karibi-Whyte was held in the highest of esteem by members of the NBA and indeed the entire legal profession. He was one of our heroes, one of the greats, a member of that distinguished cadre of Jurists that is fast becoming extinct. His many judgements bear eloquent testimony to his intellect and profundity and remain indelible in our body of case-law.”

The President bid the late Justice farewell and prayed for his soul rest in perfect peace.
