Agbaje in a recent interview said the the delay in trial of corruption cases was a serious indictment of the judiciary.
Reacting to the call by President Buhari to the judiciary to support his anti-graft war, by ensuring that the criminal cases in court were not delayed, Agbaje said “It is a serious indictment to say the courts are the ones encouraging delay tactics to frustrate the hearing of corruption cases. It is a serious indictment on the judiciary. It is now for the judiciary to redeem itself.”
