Justice Sheikh Ahmed Lemu, a renowned Islamic scholar and retired justice, is dead.

Lemu died on Thursday in Minna, Niger State, at the age of 91.

Lemu’s son, Nurudeen, announced on behalf of his family.

Nurudeen, however, didn’t provide details of his father’s death.

“It’s with sadness and reverence to Allah that we announce the passing away of our father, DrJustice Sheikh Ahmed Lemu OFR, in the early hours of this morning in Minna.

“Burial arrangements to be announced later,” Nurudeen told BBC Hausa.

Lemu, a retired grand khadi, is arguably best remembered for leading the committee set up by former President Goodluck Jonathan in 2011 to review the violence that characterized that year’s presidential election.
