•Nasarawa State Chief Judge, Justice Suleiman Umaru Dikko

 The Chief Judge of Nasarawa State, Justice Suleiman Umaru Dikko, has tasked judges and prosecutors to speed up cases before them in order to decongest Prisons in the State.

The state number one Judge made the assertion while on first quarter Statewide Prison visit; adding that Judges of the lower courts will soon be given the power for summary trial in order for them to dispose of minor cases within the stipulated laws, saying this will help in no small measure at prison decongestion.

The CJ during the visit released 20 inmates across prison formations in the state. Addressing the freed inmates, Justice Dikko told them: “Go and sin no more.”

The State Controller of Prisons, Patrick C. Dalyop, appreciated the CJ for regularly embarking on prison visit as this gesture keeps putting smile on faces of the inmates.
