IGP meets CJN, seeks synergy with judiciary

A police statement says Inspector-General Usman Alkali Baba met with Chief Justice if Nigeria Ibrahim Tanko Muhammed on Wednesday, seeking to solidify the synergy between the police and the judiciary.

Muyiwa Adejobi, in the statement, said the visit aims at “solidifying the synergy between the Police and the Judiciary as key players in the Criminal Justice System”.

“The IGP equally sought the collaboration of the CJN in accrediting the legal department of the Nigeria Police Academy, Wudil, Kano State to enable its graduates 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 prosecutorial 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 statement adds that the IGP stated his resolve to uphold “the sanctity of the Criminal Justice System and rule of law, which is vital to professionalism and citizen-based policing.”
