In a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media, Mrs Olufunmilayo Wakama, on July 10, Amosun said that he was greatly saddened by the news of the sudden death of the prominent lawyer, coming at a time when his wealth of experience was mostly needed in reshaping the destiny of the nation.

Mr Amosu hailed the strong commitment of the politician to the enthronement of democratic principles in the country.

“This is so sad; the law profession has lost another bright star. Bamidele Aturu was passionately committed to the enthronement of democratic principles and the emancipation of the marginalized and oppressed. He has done his bit and certainly left his footprints on the sands of time”, the Governor said.

Mr Amosun commiserated with the family of the deceased, the Nigerian legal profession, the Human Rights community as well as his friends and political associates.

He prayed to the Almighty God to grant his soul eternal rest and give the family the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss.
