The death of the Secretary General of the Nigerian Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs,
Alhaji Lateef Adegbite has been announced.
The governor of Ogun State, in a statement signed by his Senior Special Assistant on Media, Funmi Wakama on Friday, announced the death of Dr Adegbite, who was also the Seriki Musulumi and Baba Adini of Egbaland.
According to the statement, Dr. Adegbite “passed on this (Friday) evening in Lagos, at the age of seventy nine.”
The statement described the late Seriki of
Egbaland as one of the icons the state has produced for Nigeria.
“Dr. Adegbite shone like a star in the field of law and was well known across the world as the mouthpiece of Islam in Nigeria”, the governor stated, adding that “the late Seriki was a man who usually offered wise counsel to governments at Federal and State levels.”
“The demise of Dr Adegbite is not just a loss to Ogun State but to Nigeria as a whole” the governor mourned.
The Islamic cleric would be laid to rest on Saturday, according to Islamic rites.
