Governor Abiola Ajimobi of Oyo State on Monday in Ibadan signed into laws, the state’s Administration of Criminal Justice Bill, 2016, and Violence Against Women Bill, 2016.

The governor signed the two bills after the state executive council meeting.

Ajimobi told newsmen after the assent that the laws would enhance justice administration.

“Our own government is a law-abiding one,” he said.

The bills were presented for assent by the Deputy Speaker of the state House of Assembly, Mr. Musah Abdulwasi, and the state Attorney-General and Commissioner for Justice, Mr Seun Abimbola,

The Administration of Criminal Justice Law provides for speedy and efficient administration of criminal justice and other matters related to it.

The two bills were passed by the Assembly in October, 2016, and November, 2016, respectively.
