Lagos State Deputy Governor, Dr. Kadri Obafemi Hamzat has described the late Baba Adinni of Lagos, His Eminence Shaykh Abdul Hafeez Ashamu Abou Nolla, OFR as an inspiration to everyone who had contact with him and a blessing to the State.

This is in commemoration of the revered Islamic leader, who died on January 9, 2024.

Eulogizing the Baba Adinni, the Deputy Governor, Dr. Kadri Obafemi Hamzat said this today at the Lagos Central Mosque, Nnamdi Azikwe, Lagos-Island venue of the Janazah Prayer held for the late Baba Adinni of the State.

According to him, the late Baba Adinni was an Islamic Legacy and a Hafiz, (A term used by Muslims for someone who has completely memorized the Holy Quran), whom Allah had blessed with a wonderful life.

“Old age is not something that you can perform any trick around. It is only the blessing of Allah. Baba crossed a hundred, he was healthy and a very sound mind. He was a Hafiz” he said. Adding that the late Baba Adinni will be sorely missed for his communal role in the state particularly in the community where he lived as everything goes through him, even quarrels and when he intervenes, it is resolved. We pray that God will raise somebody else to fill that role because the people will miss him.

Commenting on the role of the late Adinni in the state, Hamzat said, “Baba was the Baba Adinni of the state which means that a lot of things passed through, even the Chief Imam of Lagos goes through him.


Hamzat however thanked Allah for the life of the deceased and prayed that Almighty Allah grants him Alijana Firdaous.

In the condolence register, the Deputy Governor wrote: “ Inna Lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji’un, May Allah grant Baba aljana Fridaus. Wonderful Hafiz at old age. May his blessings abide with him in the grave. Ameen”.
