NO OFFENDER SHOULD ESCAPE JUSTICE ON TECHNICALITIES BASIS - CHIEF JUSTICE OF NIGERIA

 

No offender should escape justice on mere technicalities, CJN tells judges.


The Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Justice Ibrahim Tanko Muhammad, has charged judges in Nigeria not to allow criminals to escape justice on mere technicalities in matters brought before them.

The CJN told judges to do thorough justice to all matters so that trust and confidence in the judiciary can be sustained by litigants and the entire citizenry.



He spoke on Monday, at the opening ceremony of the 2021 national workshop for investigators and prosecutors, organised by the National Judicial Institute (NJI) in Abuja.

According to the CJN, who is also the NJI chairman, “it is often painful to see offenders walk away on technicalities just because due diligence was not observed during an investigation or in the course of the trial.

To this end, your respective responsibilities have a lasting impact on the peace, security and stability of this nation, flowing from the fact that the presence or absence of undesirable elements in the society is firmly situated within your day-to-day activities and the powers conferred on you via different legislations.

“Therefore, failure to diligently investigate and prosecute can further endanger victims, witnesses, and other vulnerable persons.

“I have no doubt that this workshop will identify aspects that require improvement and through this, form a network aimed at promoting cooperation among stakeholders in the criminal justice sector.”

      AKURE OBASHIP: OBA AGUNSOYEBIOYINBO ADEMUAGUN ADESIDA 11 BROUGHT CLASS AND DIGNITY TO THE THRONE                 By Sunday Ajibola There are men and there are men. Man gets to positions of power and authority and bring to bear their inner qualities. Position, as we have it here, is used to do all sorts of things; good and bad. But mostly and vexatiously, position blinds us as we use it to cheat and deny others their rights. Certain men understand that position is an opportunity to etch their names in gold and put such in the same of time.   It is exactly fifty years today that the 42nd Deji of Akure, late Oba Agunsoyebioyinbo Ademuagun Adesida 11 joined his ancestors. That fateful day was Sunday and in the evening; darkness was just enveloping the city. It was the strange shouts of "opo ye o, opo ye o, opo ye o", that prompted me to rush out of our house at Oke aro. I saw people running helter, skelter. I did not bother about them. I was looking for the "electric
