According to him, the failure of the justice system to ensure that perpetrators of crime are brought to book was responsible for the continued killings and violence in the country.
The former presidential candidate in the 2019 general elections stated this in response to the renewed attacks in Plateau and Taraba States.
Atiku maintain that Nigeria’s justice system should ensure that criminals who were caught in heinous crime were meted with adequate punishments.
A statement by his Media Aide, Paul Ibe reads:
A society with a derelict justice system is a fertile land for misconduct, according to a popular Africa adage.
To be sure that we are one step ahead of criminals who pose existential threats to our internal security, it is important that we empower our justice system with the belief that when stiff punishments are handed down on these criminals, there will be a deterrence for a repeat of this nature of crime.
So, there is no deterrence to such crimes. Justice is thus key to promoting peace in our communities.
If you give people the confidence that anyone who breaks the law will be found and made to face the full wrath of the law, then people will be less inclined to promote violence and the killings that come with it.
