The chief justice of the Delta, Judge Marshal Umukoro, on Wednesday inaugurated the judicial division of the Abraka High Court in Abraka.

High Court public relations officer Timothy Agbaragu said this in a statement made available to reporters in Asaba.

The chief justice said that the creation of Abraka’s judicial division mainly stemmed from the need to bring justice closer to the people.

“When I began my administration as Chief Justice of Delta State in 2015, I made a commitment to ensure that the rule of law is maintained through easy access to justice,” he said. -he declares.

According to him, the factors which necessitated the creation of the judicial division included the fact that Abraka, as a university town, acquired over the years the status of urban.

Umukoro said the judicial division has also generated intense business activity and an increase in crime.

He said that over 65% of cases in Isiokolo’s Judicial Division came from the new division and that this would allow legal practitioners and clients to easily access justice.

The chief justice thanked Governor Ifeanyi Okowa for the tremendous support given to justice since taking office as chief justice of Delta State despite the difficult economic climate.

Umukoro tasked the pioneer staff to enforce the code of conduct for court employees.

He warned that appropriate sanctions would be invoked against erring staff in accordance with the rules in force through the Judicial Service Commission.

The chief justice denounced the burning of court buildings in the state, instructing young people to protect court buildings.

Umukoro implored the magistrates to respect the judicial oath to which he subscribed.

He urged legal practitioners to always stand on the side of justice and to avoid any conduct that would obstruct the administration of justice.

Umukoro has assured litigants fairness in the delivery of justice without fear or favor.
