Charly Boy’s father, Justice Chukwudifu Oputa has passed on. The former judge of the Supreme Court and Chairman, Oputa Panel, passed on peacefully today Sunday May 4th after recovering from a brief illness, the family announced this afternoon. He was aged 89.

Mr. Oputa died on Sunday after a protracted illness at the age of 96. His maverick son, Charles Oputa, popularly called Charley Boy, confirmed the death of the jurist.

Mr. Oputa was born in Oguta, Imo State. He attended primary school in Oguta before moving to Kings College and later, Yaba College of Technology, all in Lagos. He also attended Achimota College, Ghana, the London University and Gray’s Inn, London.

Mr. Oputa was called to bar in 1953 but later set up private practice in Port Harcourt in 1954. He was appointed a judge in 1966 and was promoted Justice of the Supreme Court in 1984, where he served until retirement in 1989.

He chaired the Human Rights Violation Investigations Commission which came to be known as the “Oputa Panel,” during the Olusegun Obasanjo regime.

May his soul rest in peace, Amen
