Police Weak, Unprepared In Criminal Investigations -Katsina Judge

The Chief Judge of Katsina State Justice Musa Danladi Abubakar has described the police as weak and unprepared in investigating criminal cases before charging them to court.


He said such delays result in the quick release of the criminals before their proper trials in court.


Abubakar spoke in a media chat on Tuesday.


He blamed police for the release of bandits undergoing trials, insisting the courts have no fault at all.


According to him: ”It’s not the court that is releasing the bandits but because no credible evidence from the police is brought forward before the courts’’,

‘’Police don’t do their homework, they don’t come ready when they come to court unlike other agencies like EFCC, ICPC, who when they come to courts, they come ready, prepared and have all their evidence with their investigations completed.


‘’The Police don’t have the resources, they have something inherent in them, they lack personnel and where they do have, they misplace priority. They treat every criminal case the same with arrest and detention. This is the quagmire we are in’’.
