If a person wasn't of any help at all. He wasn't useful.His service didn't help. In such a situation, if I use the sentence " He didn't come of any use".

Would that be a correct sentence.

    As explained above, this is meaningless in English.
    You could, however, say: He didn't prove to be useful.
    prove (to be) useful
