Adamawa Judges Hold Proceedings Under Trees – NBA


The Nigerian Bar Association (NBA), Adamawa State Branch, has called for financial autonomy for judiciary to improve justice delivery.

This is just as the NBA lamented the poor condition of some area courts in Tola, Ngurore and Karlahi, saying judges were allegedly “sitting under trees and in the open.”

Adamawa NBA state branch chairman, Aji Kamale, stated this, lamenting the slow dispensation of justice delivery caused by the poor infrastructure in the state.

Aji said, “The area courts of Tola, Ngurore and Karlahi are very bad, in fact judges of some of these courts have no offices and when the judge don’t have an office, the man can stay in his house for a period of two, three weeks or one month without going to work, even if he goes to work he may sit for just 30 minutes or an hour under a tree or under the debris.”
