Kaduna sets up mobile courts to try curfew violators

The Kaduna State government has set up mobile courts to summarily try curfew violators in its effort to fight and preserve public safety. The State Government has issued an executive order prohibiting the movement and gathering of persons across the State.

This was disclosed by the State Chief Registrar, Amina Bello in Kaduna.

It was stated that, during the State Executive Council meeting, approval was given to set up mobile courts in Kaduna and its environs to enforce the said regulations and executive order.

The court will deal with violators summarily without the need for the present cumbersome procedure of taking offenders to court over such violations.

It read that, Magistrates that will preside over the mobile courts have already been assigned by the State Ministry of Justice.

The Magistrates will be sitting at various locations across the city starting with Kakuri, Kawo, Magajin Gari, Rigasa, Sabon-tasha, Maraban Rido and Rigachikun respectively.
