The Chief Judge of the FCT High Court, Justice Ishaq Bello on Wednesday inaugurated the Nyanya Judicial Division of the court and warned lawyers against engaging in sharp practices.
Bello said the new court located in Nyanya, a satellite town in the Federal Capital Territory would help reduce the workload of the judicial division.
He added that the division would also serve Karu, Mararaba, Jikwoyi and Karshi axis in an attempt to bring justice closer to the people.
The CJ said the new division was created to cater to the growing population in the city and to reduce the rate at which people travelled long distances to get justice.
He noted that there was a lot of distance between the city centre and the satellite towns adding that this made it difficult for people to easily access the city centre to transact business. NAN)
