A Lagos based lawyer, Moyosore Onibanjo on Friday said several factors are responsible for the delay in the delivery of justice in Nigeria.

Speaking as a guest on Channels Television’s breakfast programme, Sunrise Daily, Mr Onibanjo said “lawyers have their part of the blame; the court – Judiciary, have their share of the blame;  the prosecution have their share of the blame; the prison authorities have their share of the blame.”

He recommended that the entire system need to be rejigged.

“Judges need to be firm. They need to take charge of their court.
