Sunday, 5th July, 2020, the 8th day of the passing on of Hon. Justice Nasiru Ajanah was spectacuularly marked by the Basketball Community in Kogi State as the gane’s coaches, players and fans gathered at the Basketball Court of Okene Club, the venue of the Ajanah Annual Basketball Championship, to pay their last respect to their late Patron, mentor and model.

Their heads were, most part of the hours, bowed, arms folded across chests, gazes reflections of indefinite recollection of memorable events of the past and postures of a grief-stricken flock in mourn of a lost shepherd.

Sounds and speeches were barely audible; Hush, hush, the uncrushed collectibles consolidate on their appetite – Basketball.

Hon. Justice Ajanah is gone but they resolved he has won.

Fanatically they began with prayers. Coach Ikunaiye coordinated but much in tears. Prayers were offered, in both Christianity and Islam.

They then wailed and wriggled in discernible pains. They played no game but the pain they fained not.

He is gone. Basketball Patron is gone though has won.

Formally active and agile feet dragged as it was time for the homage trek. They embarked on the procession proceeding from Okene Club, usual venue of Ajanah Annual Basketball Championship. They stopped over at the Patron’s GRA, Okene residence, proceeded to the palace of HRM, Alhaji Ado Ibrahim, the Ohinoyi of Ebiraland and finally made Ajanah’s Family Compound, Idozumi, Okene, the destination. Hajia Halimat Edo trudged along as a heroin.

Alhaji Jafaru Ajanah was at hand. Questions. Where’s he? He asked. How are you people going to cope or carry-on? Who do we fall on now? What happens to this collectibles?

With heavy hearts, sorrow, dejection and despair they muttered purposefulness. The Ajanah Annual Basketball Championship must be sustained by the special grace of God they chorused.

They were vehemently resolute and with that spirit they dispersed satisfied that the Patron has been assured of a resolve for continuity in eternal honour of his passion and love, the game of Basketball.

Adieu and keep being our hero and mentor as we keep your memory alive they said as each stretch a lazy lurch at a perch.
