Hurrah! Ilorin Emirate Produces A New Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN)


Hurrah! Ilorin Emirate Produces A New Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN)

A distinguished son of Ilorin, Lawyer Abdulmumini Jimoh, has emerged as a Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN). His appointment into the exalted rank reserved for most outstanding Lawyers in Nigeria was announced alongside others by the Registrar of the Supreme Court earlier on Friday, November 13, 2020.

The new silk is the Director of Public Prosecution, Kwara State. He hails from Ile Kawu in the Ita-Kudimo Quarters, Pakata Road, Ilorin, Kwara State.

The new silk is a prominent Muslim activist and a close pal of the late Dr Muhammad Ali Olukade. He was a member of the pioneer set of students of the Government Secondary School, Afon, from where he obtained his West African School Certificate in 1981. He started his degree programme in Law at the revered University of Ilorin but had to get it completed at the prestigious Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, following the shut-down of the UNILORIN Faculty of Law by the administration of General Ibrahim Babangida (IBB).

With his well-deserved elevation, Ilorin Emirate now boasts of having produced eleven (11) Senior Advocates of Nigeria. The late Alhaji Abdulganiyu Folorunsho AbdulRazaq, SAN, OFR, who was so elevated in 1985, was not only the first from the great Ilorin Emirate but was also the first from Kwara State. Other Senior Adovates of Ilorin origin include
AGF Abdurasaq, SAN; Alarape Salman SAN; Dele BELGORE SAN; Saka ISAU SAN; Adebayo Adelodun SAN; K.K. ELEJA SAN; Kamaldeen Ajibade SAN; Prof KANNIKE SAN; Prof Muhammed Mustapha  AKANBI, SAN and Abdulmumi JIMOH SAN, etc.


Congratulations to Learned Silk-designate Lawyer Abdulmumini Jimoh!

Congratulations to Kwara State!
