The judge was due for his statutory retirement in March 2018 but suddenly  turned in  his letter of resignation dated December 6, 2017 on Thursday.
Although his one-paragraph letter was received at the Office of the Acting Chief Judge of the Federal High Court in Abuja, on December 7 (Thursday), the letter stated that his retirement took effect from December 6 (Wednesday).
The letter did not disclose the reason for the action.
He was among the judges whose residences were raided by security agencies on allegation of corruption.
Adeniyi  is the grandson of Adetokunbo Ademola, whom the colonial masters appointed chief justice of Nigeria in 1958. He remained in that position till 1972, making him the longest serving chief justice in the history of Nigeria.
Adeniyi was the judge in whose court the DSS arraigned Sambo Dasuki, former national security adviser. He also presided over the forgery case which the federal government brought against Senate President Bukola Saraki, Ike Ekweremadu, his deputy, and that which sacked Ahmadu Fintri as acting governor of Adamawa State. Adeniyi comes from Ogun State.
