One of the children of late Akanbi, Mr Ahmed Akanbi, confirmed the way of the Ghana-born incorruptible judge and a foremost anti-graft crusader.
The Janaza prayer, according to the spokesperson of the family, will take place today by 12 noon at the deceased residence, No. 6, Agba Dam street, off Ahmadu Bello way, G. R. A Ilorin, the Kwara State capital, while the eight-day Fidau will hold next week Sunday.
