Kano Judiciary Disposes 71,914 Cases in 2023 Legal Year– CJ


The Kano State Judiciary has disposed of 71,914 out of the 102,234 cases filed in the 2022–2023 legal year.

The Chief Judge, Justice Dije Abdu-Aboki, made this known during a ceremony to mark the 2023–2024 new legal year in Kano.

Abdu-Aboki said that the judiciary currently has 30,320 pending cases, including criminal and civil cases from the State High Court, Magistrates’ Court, and Shari’a Court.

“Of the 102,234 total cases received, 29,108 were criminal, out of which 23,009 were disposed.

“The appeal section of the High Court successfully translated 90 per cent of documents and records of proceedings received from litigants and the Upper Shari’a Court, she said.

According to her, the review of legal practice within each legal system, including the successes and challenges, will help in projecting the speedy dispensation of justice.

“Relocating courts to other places that were in deplorable condition also contributed to delay in the disposal of cases,’’ Abdu-Aboki said.

She, however, commended Governor Abba Kabir-Yusuf for approving the completion of abandoned courts along Zaria and Zungeru Road in the Kano metropolis.

Earlier, Gov. Yusuf expressed his commitment to collaborate with the judiciary for the effective administration of justice.

He hailed the Chief Judge, Grand Khadi, and judicial officers for their tireless efforts.

“Kano State, under my stewardship, is an adherent and believer in the rule of law and also a believer in the independence of the judiciary.

The governor assured that his administration would do everything possible to assent the independence of the judiciary in the state.”

He urged the nine newly appointed judges in the state to be fair and just when sworn into office.

“Do not let your emotions override the interests of the people of Kano,” Kabir-Yusuf said.
