We are working with justice ministry to decongest cells, says Lagos police

The Lagos state police command has disclosed that it is collaborating with the ministry of justice in the state to decongest cells amid the ongoing strike of the Judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria (JUSUN).

Recall that JUSUN on April 6 embarked on an indefinite strike to protest against the non-implementation of financial autonomy for the judiciary.

President Muhammadu had, in May 2020, signed an executive order granting financial autonomy to both the judiciary and legislative arms of government — but the order was suspended after state governors raised concerns.

With the JUSUN strike currently in its third month, the development has crippled the dispensation of justice in the country as courts have remained under lock and key.

In an interview with newsmen on Tuesday, the police public relations officer, Muyiwa Adejobi said the state’s chief judge has provided the command with magistrates and district prosecutors to assess suspects’ files and grant bail.

He, however, did not state the number of suspects that have been granted bail.

“The command had been managing the situation in collaboration with the office of the state’s chief judge,” he said.

“We work with the office of the CJ and attorney-general of Lagos state to decongest our cells.

“The CJ has provided the services of some magistrates and district prosecutors to assess case files and grant bail to some suspects. So, we are collaborating with them in this regard.”
