<p class="">Angered by the non-prosecution of crime suspects, Justice Suleiman Dikko, Chief Judge (CJ), of Nasarawa State, has threatened to stop signing arrest warrants for the Police.</p>

<h1>Dikko issued the threat on Wednesday in Wamba, during his tour of Federal Prisons in the state.</h1>

<p class="">The CJ expressed shock at the persistent lack of prosecution of a large number of accused persons in prisons, and described the situation as “frustrating”.</p>

<p class="">According to him, efforts to de-congest the prisons were being frustrated by the inability of the Police to persecute accused persons, after arresting them over alleged crimes.</p>

<p class=""><em>“In the course of going round prisons, we found that some inmates have not been arraigned in court, four years after they were arrested.</em></p>

<p class=""><em>“If the legal units of the Police Force fail to take urgent action towards addressing this trend, I will stop signing arrest warrants.</em></p>

<p class=""><em>“We are working to de-congest the prisons and ensure justice to inmates; the judiciary will not want its efforts thwarted by anybody</em>,” he said.</p>

<p class="">Dikko directed the welfare department of the prisons to contact family members of the inmates who were granted bail, to come to their aid.</p>

<p class="">He also directed judges in lower courts to conclude minor cases involving awaiting-trial inmates, especially those who had admitted to their crime.</p>

<p class=""><em>“By March, I will be coming for another round of visit. I will free the suspects if I discovered that their cases have not been concluded,</em>” he said.</p>
