Katsina State Judiciary has procured 27 vehicles for police and judges to ensure quick investigation and effective justice delivery in the judicial system.
The state Chief Judge, Justice Musa Danladi Abubakar disclosed this to newsmen in Katsina on the sidelines of the 2022 Legal Year celebration on Thursday.
Justice Danladi Abubakar explained that two Hilux vehicles were provided to the police Criminal Investigation Department (CID), to enable it to have access to easy investigations in all nooks and crannies of the state.
He explained that, victims of rape, robbery, theft and other criminalities turned to be the ones providing vehicles, fuelling and providing paper to police to write statements during investigations.
Justice Abubakar said quick investigation into cases would pave the way for quick dispensation of Justice.
He reiterated that, 25 other vehicles were also provided to 25 judges as official cars for their movement.
Justice Musa Danladi noted that the cars would ease the movements of the judges as well as shield them from the risk of being attacked by criminals standing trial in court.
“It doesn’t augur well for judges to be boarding public transport because they don’t know those they are boarding the cabs with,” Justice Musa Danladi said.
Justice Musa Danladi Abubakar said the provision of official vehicles would go a long way to uphold the integrity and credibility of the judges.
