Lagos State Ministry of Justice is set to train Police Prosecutors quarterly on the technics of effective investigation.
Director, Public Prosecution, Mrs. Adeyemi Olayinka stated this during a three-day working visit by a delegation from Kaduna State Ministry of Justice to understudy the working patterns of Lagos State Ministry of Justice.
Speaking on the challenges faced with the Judiciary system, Adeyemi said the Judiciary ought to include lawyers in disciplinary committee to investigate petitions filed against magistrates that delay the dispensation of justice.
Commenting during the delegation’s visit to one of the State District Prosecutors Office at Samuel Ilori Magistrate Court, Ogba, Magistrate Owolabi Lateef, who represented the Chief Magistrate, acknowledged that the introduction of Resident District Public Prosecutors in Magistrate Courts has helped to scrutinise and sift through every charge brought to the court, thereby eliminating unnecessary and frivolous allegations.
The Magistrate, however, urged the delegation’s leader, Solicitor General and Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Justice, Kaduna State, Mr. Chris Adapar Umar to key into the project and the idea of decongesting the Correctional Centres by applying various strategies to solve the problem.
