It's heartening to see efforts being made to address the issue of prolonged detention without trial, particularly in cases where individuals have been awaiting trial for an extended period. Saliu Akande's release after spending four years in custody without a case file is a significant step towards promoting justice and upholding the rights of individuals.

The visit of Justice Daniel Okungbowa to the Auchi Medium Security Correctional Centre and his commitment to decongesting the prison while promoting the speedy trial of inmates is commendable. The provisions of Section 470 (2) of the Edo State Administration of Law 2018, empowering the court to ensure criminal matters are dealt with promptly, are crucial in facilitating fair and efficient legal proceedings.

It's essential for judicial authorities to prioritize the rights of individuals, including the right to a fair and timely trial. Prolonged detention without trial not only undermines the principles of justice but also contributes to prison overcrowding and human rights violations.

By taking proactive measures to address these issues, such as regular case reviews and promoting the efficient administration of justice, the judiciary plays a vital role in upholding the rule of law and safeguarding the rights of all individuals involved in the legal system.
