JUSTICE – Whether justice is for the accused person alone – The tripartite nature of justice

Uncategorised

Justice is not a one-way traffic meant to benefit an accused person alone. Justice is in fact a three-way traffic justice for the Appellant who was accused of having committing such a nefarious offence as armed robbery; justice for the victims who have had to go through the traumatizing experience of being on the receiving end of an armed robbery incident, and justice for the society whose social norms and values had been desecrated and broken by the criminal act complained of.Per ADAMU JAURO, JSC in JEREMIAH JOSEPH V. THE STATE (2022-LCER-46642-SC) at Pp. 28-30; Paras. B-C.
