Jadegoke Badejo to be buried on Tuesday

A Senior Advocate of Nigeria and Principal Partner of Bonajo Badejo and Co, late Sir Jadegoke Badejo, will be buried on Tuesday, June 16.

A statement on Sunday said the burial, which would be private, would be streamed live on the social media at 10am.

The family said the funeral would begin with a Christian wake on Monday, which could be viewed on Zoom at 4pm.

Badejo, a Knight of John Wesley who died at 61 years, lived a life of excellence that stood him out from his contemporaries, the family said.

The third child of the late Rev. Jacob Badejo and late Mrs. Grace Badejo of Ijebu-Igbo was born in Ilesa, Osun State, where his parents worked as teachers.

He gained admission to University of Ile-Ife (now Obafemi Awolowo University), where he became a university scholar based on his academic performance.

He became a member of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators (Nigeria) in 2001 and became a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators (Nigeria) in 2014.  He was legal adviser and company secretary to many blue chip companies and prominent individuals in and out of Nigeria. He became a Senior Advocate of Nigeria in 2010.

 “Sir Jadegoke Adebonajo Badejo, had stepped his feet solidly on the sands of time. The legal profession will miss him dearly. His church will remember his labour of love. Humanity will cherish his societal impact. And history will be kind to him as one who came, saw and conquered,” the statement said.
