Edo ex-cj urges due process over solution to pogrom
FORMER Chief Judge of Edo State, Justice Cromwell Idahosa, has sued for patience and due process in tackling the herdsmen’s menace.
Speaking shortly after a lecture organised to mark his 66th birthday and retirement from service, the jurist challenged security agencies on arrest and prosecution of the perpetrators.
He noted: “Legal way is the only way I know of settling disputes. Let the security agencies try and go after them, investigate the cases and charge them to court. I can’t direct you to go and be fighting, I wouldn’t do that because first of all, they may beat you. So, what I am saying is that we should be patient.
“Let the security agencies do their work, yes there are questions about the headship of the security agencies but sometimes public opinion can force certain things to change. So, let’s wait how they go about it.”
