Oyo Acting CJ Debunks Alleged Rift between Judiciary, Police
Commissioner of Police in Oyo State, Mr Adebowale Williams has promised a robust partnership with the Ministry of Justice to collectively rid the society of criminality.
Mr Williams stated this during a courtesy visit to the newly appointed Acting Chief Judge of Oyo State, Justice Iyabo Yerima, at the High Court Ring Road, Ibadan.
He said the visit became imperative in a bid to further solidify the already existing synergy and deepen the legacy of mutual respect between the Oyo State Judiciary and the Police Command.
The Commissioner of Police, therefore, applauded the elevation of the Acting Chief Judge to the exalted position, asserting that it was most deserved, especially at a time when the State was navigating towards the general elections.
Mr Williams added that the meeting was a rich session of cross-pollination of gainful ideas bothering around building workable ideas to increase the proficiency of standard investigation and prosecutorial procedures, a swift dispensation of justice for offenders and standardizing the administration of the Criminal Justice System.
In her remarks, the Acting Chief Judge of Oyo State, Justice Iyabo Yerima appreciated the Commissioner of Police and his entourage and promised to build a formidable judicial partnership with the Command under her watch.
She added that this would put to rest spells of rumours that made the rounds on social media platforms regarding an alleged face-off between the Police and the Judiciary in Oyo State as being completely untrue, mischievous and a figment of the author’s twisted imagination.
