“Criminal Suspects Must Be Tried In Accordance With Known Law And Not Culture/Religion/Dictates of any Group or Person”.
Suspects of crime are assumed innocent and can only be tried in accordance with known laws and not according to any religion, culture, will of any group, cult or association or dictates of any person, politician, king or clergy.
In Abuja, Federal Capital Territory of Nigeria suspects are to be tried according to the Administration of Criminal Justice Act. The ACT is also used to try federal criminal cases in Federal High Courts located in any part of Nigeria.
My authorities are section 36 of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, 1999 and section 8 (4) Administration of Criminal Justice Act,2015.
