IGP Visits CJN, Says Police Need Improvement On Case Prosecutions

The Inspector-General of Police, IGP Usman Alkali Baba has on Wednesday paid a courtesy visit to the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Ibrahim Tanko Muhammad, CFR, in his office at the Supreme Court of Nigeria, Abuja.

The visit was targeted at strengthening the relationship between the Police and the Judiciary.

Both agencies were seen as key players in the Criminal Justice System of the country charged with the protection of human interest and justice.

The IGP who is also a member of the Force Management Team asked for the collaboration of the CJN in accrediting the legal department of the Nigeria Police Academy, Wudil, Kano State to enable its graduates to proceed for further studies at the Nigerian Law School.

The IGP emphasized that this will ensure the Police have more lawyers within its pool to strengthen its prosecution duties and hopefully produce more Senior Advocates of Nigeria (SAN) in the future.

The CJN appreciated the visit which was the first of its kind ever by a sitting IGP. The CJN equally commended the IGP for his thoughtfulness and expressed readiness to continually partner with the Nigeria Police Force for seamless justice administration.

The Inspector-General of Police emphasized the inclination of his administration to uphold the sanctity of the Criminal Justice System and rule of law which is vital to professionalism and citizen-based policing.
