Civil society groups under the aegis of Coalition Against Corrupt Leaders, CACOL, have warned judges in the country to stop handling corruption cases with levity.

A statement signed by its Executive Chairman, Debo Adeniran said that the recent developments in the nation’s judicial system show that the country was not serious in ensuring a corrupt-free society.

The statement, which further accused some members of the judiciary of ridiculing the country reads: “We are worried that soon corruption cases stalled or dismissed in our courts have always speedily sailed through in London courts and in other jurisdictions. We are worried that our judicial officers especially our judges are giving the impression they are there to do the bidding of the very corrupt persons before their courts while the victims are harassed and intimidated.
