The Lagos State government yesterday began free legal services at Agege market.
The Director of Public Affairs Centre (PAC) in the Ministry of Justice, Mrs Omotola Akinsanya said over 750 persons were attended to by the eight agencies in the ministry during the awareness and sensitisation, tagged: Legal Clinic.
The gesture, she said, was to assist the public in resolving conflicts at no cost and enlighten them on their legal rights.
According to her, the intention of the government is to use the agencies as mechanisms for amicable conflict resolutions and a strategy to decongest the various prisons in the state.
She noted that it was expedient for every resident to be aware of their fundamental rights such that they would know whenever their rights were trampled upon.
The Director of Citizens’ Mediation Centre (CMC), Mrs. Oluwatoyin Odusanya, urged the public to visit any of the centres for their complaints.
She added that issues that could not be resolved immediately would be referred to appropriate offices for adequate attention.
The director urged those who are yet to benefit from the services provided by the ministry to take advantage of the opportunity to resolve issues on landlord/tenants feud, debt reclaim, land issues, matrimonial cases among others.
