Hastening Prosecutions, Restricting Stay of Proceedings

Noel A. Ihebuzor

I was very enthused this morning as I read this article. To learn that the House of Representatives was doing something to hasten prosecution of cases was sweet music to my ears.  I recalled some jottings I made earlier this year in April on this same subject (see here) and decided to share it once again with my readers.

Too many innocent Nigerians suffer the pain and agony of protracted trials. Hastened prosecutions would lessen that suffering.  Also many Nigerians who are walking about free today should be behind bars. The sooner such persons are brought to justice, the better for everyone. Timing is of essence here as a number of these persons who have looted public assets and appropriated public lands are now seeking shelters behind political parties and feverishly parading themselves as saints. As they photo-shop their pasts, they are also perfecting a narrative of victimhood even as evidences of their misdeeds and knavery are there for all to see. The closer the trials and incarcerations of such people are to 2015, the easier it will be for these fast talking persons to sell the public tall tales whose intentions  would be to try to present plain professional prosecutions as politically driven persecutions.
